How to apply for £260m hospital safety technology fund

NHS England has published further details on the Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards Technology Fund.

They spell out how NHS foundation trusts and NHS trusts can access the new £260 million technology fund. The accompanying guidance describes the steps that local care economies can take to effectively flow vital data across organisational boundaries to drive up high quality and effective care.

In keeping with NHS England’s commitment in the planning guidance, Everyone Counts, the fund can be used by NHS foundation trusts and NHS trusts to progress their activities to replace outdated paper based systems for patient notes with integrated digital care records (IDCRs).
