Salford Royal choose Genesis

Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust appoint Genesis for their theatres and GS1 integration

We are proud to welcome Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust as the newest partner to the growing list of Genesis Automation customers.

As part of an internal procurement review to improve the Trust’s stock and procurement process in line with NHS eProcurement and GS1 compliancy, Salford Royal chose to implement the Genesis solution, an inventory management system in Theatres initially, with the intention of rolling the system out across the Trust.

“We specifically chose Genesis as it was the most comprehensive trust wide solution on the market. It was important for us to select a company which was flexible, responsive and able to work with Salford Royal on our requirements. The potential cash releasing and efficiency savings are significant and this project will also help us deliver against the NHS e-Procurement and GS1 strategy.”
Joe Lever – Head of Procurement – Salford Royal

“Patient safety is at the forefront of the Genesis offering, by encouraging best practice, based on standardisation of product, procedure and patient requirements, with the ability to improve tracking and traceability. The solution enables Salford Royal to utilise its staff efficiently so that clinical staff spend the minimum amount of time re-ordering and handling stock and that time is then given back for patient care.”
James Corcoran – Consultant Anaesthetist and Clinical Director Perioperative Care – Salford Royal

Genesis are immensely proud to have been selected as the supplier of choice for Salford Royal and will assist the Trust in delivering multiple benefits. As the preferred supplier to three of the six GS1 demonstrator sites, we feel our expertise in this area will really benefit Salford Royal in this project.

“We understand, given the current financial climate, that a robust business case is essential for a project such as this to be allocated funding. We worked as a true partnership during the business case process and offered support to Salford Royal to ensure a robust five year cost of ownership ROI model was presented. The saving projections and ROI payback was compelling and we look forward to this on-going partnership with the team.”
