South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust transforms patient care and professional development with Lifesize video technology

A strategic government review, ‘Transforming Your Care’, made it clear to the Trust that it needed to think more strategically in its approach towards the improvement of current processes, to innovate and implement a higher standard of patient care and professional development capabilities. Due to the remoteness of the population and large geographical area, a solution was needed to connect healthcare professionals regardless of their location. This would mean connecting doctors with specialists outside of the Trust, conducting and trialling virtual clinics, reaching patients unable to visit the hospital, improving training and education of staff and trainees, and creating an environment where innovation could thrive.
