Responding at pace to the NHS’ needs

Liaison Workforce

This year’s HPMA Annual Conference theme is Architects of Change, and will look at the transformation of the world of work within the NHS. This year has seen more change than ever in the face of COVID-19, and Liaison Group has been passionate about responding to the NHS’ changing needs and providing solutions which address these new requirements.

Over the past few weeks, Liaison Group, in partnership with Infinity Health, have been seeking to address the challenge of digitising the lateral flow staff testing process at trusts, enabling them to benefit from real-time reporting with a robust and reliable tool.

In line with the announcement that NHS staff would be required to self-test for COVID-19 from Monday 23 November 2020, Liaison Group and Infinity Health began to look at how the lateral flow testing process could be moved away from paper recording in order to help relieve current pressures, maintain capacity and support patient continuity of care in the face of the pandemic.

Infinity, a task management digital platform, is being used by several trusts across England and will benefit both staff and management by providing a consistent process to minimise the problems resulting from manual paper-based processes, and even online forms, which is key to gaining effective real-time reporting and producing the outputs that Public Health England (PHE) requires each week.

The digitised solution automates tasks, capturing statutory data that is a PHE requirement for a notifiable disease, as well as being used as reporting for infection control.

Bruce Thew and Vanessa Forster of Liaison Group will be attending the virtual HPMA Conference to provide a series of live sessions which demo the lateral flow testing tool and show how it has responded to solve a new challenge in the NHS.
