GOSH’s IT system, which was in desperate need of modernisation, includes 5,000 users served by 65 communication rooms across departmentsuch as Paediatric ICU, theatres and Pathology.
Both Connect-IP and Block Solutions had worked together on a similar project before at the Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust which involved ungrading the communications rooms, installing a wireless network and linking areas with fibre optic cables.
Marc Chang, technical director at Block Solutions, said: “As with any major project in a hospital environment, the work wasn’t without its challenges. However, Connect-IP helped overcome these with great success and enabled us to complete a significant portion of the work with Great Ormond Street Hospital.
“We have worked with Connect-IP on similar projects in the past and each time they have proven to be a very valuable partner,” he said.
Bob Allen, director at Connect-IP, added: “To be working with one of the country’s best known hospitals was a massive coup. This was a major contract for the company and obviously we are very pleased with the positive feedback received. Through the combined expertise of Block and Connect-IP, the hospital’s advanced ICT systems now deliver a responsive, flexible and reliable service to the Trust. It has taken a year to complete and showcases our credentials in supporting IT redevelopment within the public sector.”
