Maternity Software from System C selected by Notts maternity services

NOTTINGHAM University Hospitals NHS Trust has selected System C's Medway Maternity software to handle more than 10,000 births a year. The solution will be deployed at the Nottingham City Hospital and the Queen's Medical Centre, which are both regional referral units for feto-maternal medicine and high-risk pregnancies. The system will be used by 370 midwives, 60 doctors and 50 administration staff across the two sites. In addition, around 120 midwives working in the community will use digital pens to collect assessment and booking information and enter it directly into Medway. Dr Ian Denley, chief executive of System C, said: "We are delighted to have won this maternity contract in a seven-month competitive procurement and to have done so against stiff competition." Lucy Kean, maternity service lead for NUH, added: "We are entering an age where accurate and user-friendly electronic records are at the heart of all that we do. We know that System C will make this an achievable aim."
