Meeting the Health Secretary’s Requirement to Phase Out Pagers

Following a recent announcement that fax machines are to be phased out across the NHS, a report has now come out claiming that Health Secretary Matt Hancock intends to ban pagers in the NHS in England.

The pagers will need to be phased out entirely by the end of 2021, and all Trusts are expected to have a plan in place by September 2020 detailing how they will ensure that this happens. On 27th February, Alan Mak presented a Private Member’s Bill in the House of Commons to make the above requirements a legal obligation for all NHS Trusts.

This is likely to lead to the undertaking of a complex project, including a multi-faceted business case, major investment in new technology, the procurement of new systems and service conformant with procurement rules, and significant organisational change.
