Softcat plc. has been awarded a contract to be the new device partner for Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The £4 million contract will support the opening and operation of Liverpool’s new 640-bed Royal Liverpool University Hospital which is due to open in September 2022.
Softcat will provide end-user devices, peripherals, pre-staging, deployment, engineering, and recycling services.
Adam Rice, Public Sector Director at Softcat, said:“NHS Trusts are being challenged by the need to transform the way they deliver care, while continuing to manage unprecedented demand. By helping Trusts harness the power of technology, we enable them to meet the challenge head on and improve outcomes, and patient and employee experiences.”
Dr Jason Bincalar, Chief Information Officer at Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust added: “Providing the best patient and staff experience at the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital was the driving force for the partnership with Softcat. The Trust needed an innovative way to equip the new hospital without compromising the high-quality service that our Digital team provides at our existing hospital sites. Sharing this challenge with Softcat and leveraging their full technology life cycle service has proved to be best approach.”
