Our client is responsible for providing a wide range of hospital based services to a population of around 360,000 people across South Staffordshire, South Derby-shire and North West Leicestershire. The number of patients cared for each year in their hospitals is impressive – over 47,000 planned and emergency operations, more than 70,000 A&E attendances and around 13,000 daycase procedures.
Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provide hospital-based services from four main sites, Queen’s, Samuel Johnson, Sir Robert Peel and the treatment centre. With staff constantly on the move, four different sites to contend with and over 2500 PC users, communicating important campaigns such as hand hygiene, energy saving and Antibiotics awareness can prove a real challenge!
Sabercom worked closely with Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to specify and install the Sabercom corporate screensaver solution. Currently running at Queen’s Hospital and the Treatment Centre with a view to being rolled out to all sites, Sabercom’s screen saver allows communication managers to drive communication campaigns and corporate information directly to the desktops of employees. The screensaver works in the same way as any ordinary screensaver with the exception that information is taken directly from Sabercom’s easy to use screensaver designer tool. The contents of the screensaver can easily be updated from one central location and information can be scheduled for certain times of day or days of the week. The Sabercom system has proven to be a useful communications channel for Burton Hospitals. Sabercom’s on-going relationship ensures that the solution is constantly evolving to meet their requirements.
“The Sabercom software is easy to use and allows the updating of our screensaver using our own corporate brand and content or nationally prepared materials in various formats. On the occasions when technical support has been required the team were always very helpful and have an excellent knowledge of their system and provide guidance in an easy to understand way”.
