Somerset NHS Foundation Trust are making strides to improve patient care

Somerset NHS Foundation Trust (Somerset FT) has partnered with Radar Healthcare in a bid to improve patient care.

Radar’s quality and compliance software brings together operational and regulatory processes into one platform and helps Somerset FT to identify live incidents, mitigate risks and use real-time information to enhance the safety of its patients.

The system has improved communication flow between wards and departments, providing live information to local managers and frontline staff. Radar’s software also enables staff to easily view and action subject access requests, claims, freedom of information requests and other functionality.

Somerset FT chose Radar’s platform because it could replace two systems and offer bespoke functionality, which was important following the merger of the Somerset Partnership with Taunton & Somerset NHS.

Stephen Thomson, associate director of integrated governance at Somerset FT, said: “Having a way of integrating our knowledge of the organisation into how we manage risk and do governance properly is brilliant. One of our senior nursing managers just loved the idea of having so much more information locally to be able to help her understand her business better.

“I would definitely encourage other NHS trusts to have a look and think about this different way of creating that day-to-day embedded governance.”
