The Estates and Technology Transformation Fund (formerly the NHS England’s Primary Care Transformation Fund) is a multi-year £1billion investment programme to help hospitals and general practice make improvements, including premises and technology. Apogee Desktop Services were awarded the contract covering the IT infrastructure based on the service deliverables, economic advantages and reputation.

Apogee Desktop Services started the process of implementing a project plan, working to Prince2 policy standard and tailoring our services to meet the exact needs of the Trust.

A full asset inventory of the new and cascaded IT equipment was then carried out, capturing the basics; specification of the assets, where they reside, serial numbers, details of new, cascaded and recycled equipment. This ensured that the Trust retained an accurate, up-to-date view of owned hardware and software assets, so that at any time they can see an “actual state” of the PC and laptop estate.

Apogee provided full project management assistance throughout and designed the supply of the systems around a three month roll-out plan devised by working with the Trust’s IT team, ensuring the appropriate recycling processes were in place.

Benefits to NHS Foundation Trust:

  • Impressive efficiency in roll out, reducing lead times from 1 year to 14 weeks.
  • Full training to ensure every user derived the full benefits of the new technology.
  • All recycling handled effectively and in accordance with both ISO and existing procedures.
