Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, a long-term customer of Servelec HSC has been shortlisted by the Association of Project Management for their Social Project of the Year Award for the Child Health System and New Service Delivery project.

The project which focused on the re-implementation of Servelec HSC’s RiO electronic patient record (EPR) system provided the Trust with an auto-scheduling IT solution for all immunisations and vaccinations for all under five-year-olds. The outcome was an enhanced child system that:

  • Provides access to all child health records in one place, incorporating access to the NHS Spine
  • Enables auto-scheduling of vaccinations for all pre-school children in Cumbria
  • Has reduced ‘did not attends’ and furthered efficiencies in scheduling GP appointments
  • Will improve the health of communities reducing disease outbreaks, reducing morbidity and future loss of life

The impact of this project will benefit all other NHS Trusts adopting the RiO Child Health services from this point on, providing an enhanced auto-scheduling tool capable of adapting to any changes to the NHS England national programme of immunisations.

Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust will learn if they are the eventual winners at the Association for Project Management Awards ceremony on the evening of Monday 26 November at Old Billingsgate.

On being shortlisted, Andrew Woods, Senior Project Manager within the digital support service for Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust said: “I’d like to extend my congratulations to the team, including colleagues from Servelec HSC who were a key partner in the successful delivery of the Child Health System and New Service Delivery project. Long-term, the improved coverage of vaccinations enabled by the RiO auto-scheduling system will result in a reduction in disease outbreaks among children, particularly in the most deprived communities in our region. Being selected as a finalist is great achievement for all the clinicians and team members involved!”
