Essentia, the non-clinical services arm of Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, appointed Cloud Service Provider, ANS Group for its datacentre transformation programme, part of a £10million investment that will see the trust realise its ambitions to deliver a reliable, highly available paperless environment.
The transformation will allow electronic records to be instantly accessible between departments inside and outside the Trust, meaning significant improvements in efficiency. This investment puts Guy’s and St Thomas’ in the strongest position possible to continue to increase their capabilities and deliver the care that their patients need.
The technology behind the transformation is Flexpod, the integrated infrastructure collaboration between Cisco, NetApp and VMware. This Flexpod is one of the largest UK deployment of the latest technologies within the public sector.
