The NHS is undergoing an unprecedented review and transformation programme. There are 3 main initiatives: the 5 year forward view, going paperless with the primary goal of interoperability and lastly working with the community to support the 44 defined Sustainability and Transformation Plans. The ultimate goal from the Department for Health is to provide better community health at a local and national level whilst improving the quality of patient care and efficiency by providing control and access of their health records. One of the delivery mechanisms to provide this through the most appropriate use Information Technology which is where Fordway is able to help.

Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest and busiest acute trusts in the North West of England. Ivan Parish, Technical Services Manager at the Trust, said:
“The Trust is carrying out a migration from a domain which we share with two other NHS Trusts to our own domain. This is a key project for us and we wanted to find the most efficient way of going about it. We were looking for advice on best practice as well as help with specifics such as handling the complexity of embedded documents and locations.
“Fordway’s consultant was very professional and really knew his stuff. He was able to provide everything we asked for, from advice on process to assistance with scripting to help us get started. It was reassuring to work with someone who’d done it before, and he was very patient in handling all our questions. As a result we’re confident that we’ve begun the project in the right way and will be able to complete it efficiently.”
