BT to Provide Communications for NHS Blood and Transport Service in England

The partnership will allow staff to remotely manage blood donor and collection information via handheld devices.

A new partnership between British Telecommunications Plc (BT) and NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) has been announced. The collaboration aims to provide a technology and communications solution for England’s NHS blood donor network. NHSBT looks after blood donation in England and transplant services across the UK, with 50 mobile teams that collect blood donations in local communities and 23 fixed donation centres.

Over the coming months, BT will connect NHSBT’s fixed and mobile sites using the company’s EE 4G network. It will also provide devices that can be managed remotely, including rugged handheld scanners, to identify and capture data on donors and blood donations, welcome device tablets to log information about donor bookings and laptops for data management.
