Capita IT to “support” Scotland’s biggest emergency department and critical care complex 

Location: UK » Scotland » G

Capita IT Services today announces that it has been awarded a £2.7m, two year contract to design, supply, implement and support a local area network (LAN) infrastructure by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

The network being installed will support the new South Glasgow Adult and Children’s Hospitals due to open in 2015. The new hospitals will form Scotland’s biggest emergency department and critical care complex, providing beds for 1,109 adults and 256 children and supported by 10,000 employees.

The new LAN will provide the core network for the hospital and will integrate with the existing infrastructure across the hospital campus. Clinicians will be able to access and share information, such as electronic patient records or picture archiving images, with other departments.
