Improving Urgent and Emergency Care through Digital

NHS Lancashire Procurement Cluster

At East Lancashire NHS Hospitals Trust, the Emergency Department was under increased pressure and were looking for a solution to free up clinical staff hours back to patient care and reduce patient waiting times.

We rapidly deployed the Dynamic Inventory Management System - Atticus - in parallel with an increased staffing model to take away stock duties from clinical staff members, therefore releasing over 168 hours weekly back to patient care. It also brought about additional stock efficiencies, including a reduction in stock par levels to not only address the initial problem but further aid the department.
