Use of Trust laptops to create a virtual office

by Bridget Griffiths | 7 months ago | in Rheumatology
Horizon 1

Our trust has recently (pre COVID-19) updated its IT and consultants were given the choice of a new PC or laptop. The laptops have enabled consultants and other members of the MDT to work from home, particularly when self-isolating.

Virtual clinics can be conducted, results checked and other work-related documents accessed so making the service and work more efficient.

Work can be done from anywhere at anytime!

What is needed to sustain the change?

Investment in laptops and IT support to ensure they can be used outside of the hospital environment.

Thanks Bridget, our Trust have offered great support with laptop provision, which has helped us work more flexibly. There are inevitable connection difficulties at times, and we need to be careful that projected workload incorporating remote working acknowledges this
