We all know how critical it is to have oversight of stock availability and distribution across a trust, but there will perhaps be no greater time than during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

This webinar will highlight how University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust have been using GS1 standards during the pandemic to help improve traceability of PPE and other vital supplies. Doing so has enabled them to not only have visibility of available stock, but also allowed them to monitor the locations of where equipment has been.

Join the team from Plymouth as they share insights on their journey so far, the benefits and challenges they encountered along the way and provide updates on their experiences over recent months. 

Webinar speakers will include:

  • Richard Price, Scan4Safety programme manager, University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust
