Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust

Core system replaced in a heartbeat at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust.

What was the challenge?

  • Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust IT infrastructure was reaching end-of-life
  • New technology was needed to meet future demands from clinical services
  • The Foundation Trust had to keep working during upgrade to protect patient care

THE POINT

Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust was created in 2020 following the merger of three acute trusts. Its group of hospitals provide a huge range of clinical services and care for a population of over 1.2 million people in central and south Essex.

During the period of the merger, significant parts of the core IT infrastructure were reaching end of life.

This posed a significant security risk to the Trust – and each hospital department’s critical services – during the transition.

CAE delivered a secure, reliable and scalable next generation solution, along with ongoing support and training to ensure the Trust gains maximum benefits from the new technology.
