Softcat has secured a £4m contract to be the new device partner for Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The deal will see Softcat offer end-user devices, peripherals, pre-staging, deployment, engineering and recycling services.
It will also work as an extension of the Trust’s Digital Services delivery team, joining an ecosystem of partners to deliver health-specific solutions.
Adam Rice, Public Sector Director at Softcat: “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.”
The deal will also support the opening and operation of Liverpool’s new 640-bed Royal Liverpool University Hospital, which is due to open this month.
Dr Jason Bincalar, CIO 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 a way to equip the new hospital without compromising 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.”
