Provided to you by the six demonstrator sites selected by the Department of Health to demonstrate the benefits of GS1 and PEPPOL standards.
We believe adoption of these standards and common ways of working has the power to transform the NHS. We’ve already started our journey to adopt the new standards and we’re excited to share our learnings with you. We are excited to be early adopters of GS1 and PEPPOL standards. We’re confident that through the adoption of these standards, we will improve everyday accuracy and efficiency within the NHS, ultimately improving patient safety: Patient – improving safety, improving care Product – everything recorded, everything accounted for Place – everything trackable, everything traceable Process – simplifying processes, releasing time to care We are all at different points in our journey to implement the standards.

We vary in terms of size and scale and where we all started from before embarking on our journey to implement the standards.

“On Wednesday, our Chair, Linda Pollard, our Trust Board and I saw a demonstration of the fantastic work our Scan4Safety programme team are delivering across the trust. Scan4Safety is a huge opportunity for LTHT, not only revolutionising the way we track products from supplier to patient and ensuring effective product recall; it is also driving forward efficiencies by enabling clinical staff to carry out many tasks at the bedside, increasing the time available to care for patients. Senior teams across many CSUs also attended the demonstration in clinical areas.
I know that Board members were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm of colleagues, the great progress that had been made and the enormous potential for LTHT going forward. Scan4Safety is a huge undertaking and one with great potential for improving the care and safety of patients by improving our systems.”
