From outdated, admin intensive, paper based rostering to real time dynamic e-Rostering, driving efficiencies and a happier workforce at Medway NHS Foundation Trust.
Having successfully implemented e-Rostering across its nursing and non-nursing areas, the Trust was still operating on an admin intensive and time consuming paper-based system for the rostering of its doctors and consultants.
