Trustmarque is proud to support NHS Wales with a country-wide project that will see every public sector healthcare worker given access to Microsoft 365 productivity tools as part of an ongoing focus on digital transformation.
More than 100,000 NHS Wales employees including GPs, consultants, nurses, therapists, paramedics and support staff will be able to access high performing apps like Outlook, Teams, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint and Yammer.
It is hoped the roll-out of Microsoft 365 will help to improve productivity, enable remote and home-based working and free up budget and resource so that ultimately NHS Wales can provide improved care to millions of patients.
As Microsoft technology partner of choice for NHS Wales, Trustmarque’s Microsoft Licensing and Technology Specialists were fundamental in providing strategic consultancy services and assessment packages to help staff prepare for the Office 365 investment.
“We look forward to being an integral part of shaping the ongoing NHS digital roadmap.”
Mark Garrity, Managing Director at Trustmarque, commented: “This is a great opportunity for Trustmarque to extend its strategic relationship with NHS Wales in supporting its Microsoft 365 adoption strategy. We look forward to being an integral part of shaping the ongoing NHS digital roadmap.”
The announcement is testament to the Welsh Public Sector’s commitment to digital transformation. In March, Wales became one of the first in the world to enable access to Microsoft 365 to all local authority schools.
Andrew Griffiths, Director of NHS Wales Informatics Service, commented: “This new national agreement is part of our commitment to refresh NHS Wales IT infrastructure and ensure it supports the transformational changes taking place across health and social care. It moves our digital estate away from locally managed services and into cloud-based services, delivering efficiencies and economies of scale.
“Frontline staff who work in our health and care services rely on technology, to help them deliver services in new, innovative ways that put the needs of patients first. I am very pleased that we are able to deliver the most up to date tools to our NHS Wales staff to help them with the fantastic work they do every day.”
