Swissphone signs paging deals with five NHS Trusts

Over the past three months, Swissphone Wireless AG has secured contracts with five NHS Trusts, including the Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, to replace their old paging infrastructure and provide emergency alerting systems. Combined, these contracts also cover the rollout of more than 2,500 Swissphone s.QUAD pagers.

Alister Cresswell, project manager at the Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said: “Due to the nature of our clinical work at Papworth, the ability to send medical emergency messages to a team, wherever they are in the new hospital is critical. We looked at other technical options and concluded that paging gives us the best balance of speed, accuracy and cost-effectiveness and the Swissphone solution meets these needs perfectly.”

Graeme Hull, head of international sales at Swissphone commented: “Recent press reports have indicated that the NHS has been directed to move away from paging in the coming years. The award of these contracts from some of the biggest and most prestigious Healthcare providers in the world, demonstrate that the staff on the ground, who actually have the responsibility of providing emergency alerting solutions for NHS Staff, understand that paging is still the most efficient and cost-effective way of delivering messages in life-critical situations.”
