Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust go live with SystmOne Mental Health

Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) are now live with SystmOne’s Mental Health module. The trust signed a five-year contract to deploy SystmOne in their mental health and learning disability services last year and are the first Trust in the North West of England to deploy the module.

CWP provides health and care services across Cheshire and Wirral, serving a local population of over 1 million people and highly specialist services in the North West for a population of 2 million. Services include mental health, learning disability, community physical health and all-age disability care – including the provision of three GP surgeries. The SystmOne Mental Health module will give CWP the tools to provide efficient, safe and user-centred mental health care.

The new ePR is expected to bring a number of benefits in the long term, such as:

  • Integration with local, regional and national systems used by partner care providers to allow information sharing to those with appropriate access.
  • NHS Spine connectivity which enables health professionals to access the national shared summary of patient information.
  • Additional functionality which they plan to implement, including electronic prescribing and medicines administration, mobile working and a patient portal allowing patients to view and contribute to their record in a controlled and structured way.

Anushta Sivananthan, CWP Medical Director, said, “We look forward to continuing to work with TPP as we further develop our configuration of SystmOne. Our aim is to provide the best possible care for the people we serve and as we look to roll out the additional functionality available through SystmOne this will allow us to better support our people to work in a more person-centred way.”

Abigail Palin, Account Manager at TPP, said “TPP is pleased to see Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust going live with SystmOne Mental Health. The Trust’s staff and patients will benefit from more integrated care in the area as well as a system that provides comprehensive support to staff, giving them more time to focus on delivering well-informed patient care.”

At the start of the year, TPP reported that they now provide clinical systems to around 30% of mental health services in England. TPP looks forward to continuing to assist CWP as they go live with SystmOne Mental Health and hope to see more trusts opt to use SystmOne to support mental health care in their area in the future.
