Tavistock and Portman NHS FT has chosen ANS Group

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is overhauling its digital operations and priming itself for future growth with the help of a new network solution and fully managed service from ANS Group.

This new fully-managed network will underpin both student and patient record systems, and will help to speed up checking-in processes, as well as enabling remote patient care and trust-wide scheduling. ANS Group, is implementing a scalable Cisco local area network (LAN) solution and has also signed a five year fully managed service contract with the Trust in excess of half a million pounds, which will act as a key enabler for trust-wide digitalisation.

David Wyndham-Lewis, Director of Transformation and Technology at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, said: “As a rapidly growing trust, we quickly identified the need to invest in state-of-the-art network infrastructure, in order to future-proof our operations and provide the best possible service to our patients and students.

“We tendered so that we could be confident that we were partnering with a specialist consultant. ANS perfectly matched our requirements and have been able to provide a high-quality service, along with the flexibility and level of management that we needed to completely transform our digital operations.”

Andy Barrow, CTO at ANS Group, added: “The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is an ambitious and forward-thinking organisation. It recognises why it’s crucial to provide a digital-first service and understands the benefits of having a comprehensive digital strategy and a robust network in place.”
