News and Notices

Last chance this year to let us know how you feel about IT 'connectivity' ....

Things are definitely getting better at DCHS ......

You said:
> This time last year 34% of staff reported always/often experiencing connectivity issues and only 30% said they rarely/never experienced connectivity issues. [Q2 2016 Pulse Check]
> Clinical staff expressed particular frustration with SystmOne:

  • they were struggling to get the best from TPP
  • they were reluctant to use Mobile Working (citing lack of confidence and understanding)
  • they were losing data because connections were failing

We have listened, and taken action.  Since then we have launched the Let's Fix IT Clinics; developed the Let's Fix IT desk top icon; direct and easy access to useful guides, hints and tips and other information and support regarding IT issues; invested time and resources in supporting training/update training on SystmOne and upgraded WiFi infrastructure in parts of the estate.

We know things are not perfect yet, but we are continuing to invest and make improvements to enable staff to get the best out of their technology.

Please help us to monitor how we are doing by completing this simple survey (3 questions). Remember, if you don't tell us what is happening we won't know, and won't be able to do something about it!
