South West Yorkshire a Wi-Fi ‘fast follower’

South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has been chosen to be an early adopter for NHS WiFi, a national scheme to roll out free Wi-Fi across the entire NHS estate.

The project will provide patients, service users and the public with access to Wi-Fi in NHS buildings in England by the start of 2019. The trust has been allocated national money to roll out NHS WiFi and will be installed by 31 March 2018.

Paul Foster, head of IT services and systems development, said: “This work will provide our patients, service users and public with secure, stable, and reliable Wi-Fi capability across the trust sites, which will be consistent with the required national standards. It will allow patients and the public to browse the internet and access health and care information. We’re delighted that our trust has been chosen as a ‘fast follower’ and the IT team will now be working with our IT Service provider, the Daisy Group to roll this out. Staff may notice colleagues from IT in their buildings doing some minor works but these should not cause any disruption.”
