Overview

Outpatient nurses

Homerton University Hospital Foundation Trust provides general and specialist health services. Last year we admitted 63,000 patients, saw over 236,000 patients in outpatient clinics and delivered over 6,000 babies. Every day we treated 325 patients in A&E which became the first such department in the country to be rated 'outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission.

Based in the London Borough of Hackney, we provide general health services at hospital and in the community and specialist care in obstetrics and neonatology, fetal medicine, fertility, HIV and sexual health, asthma and allergies, keyhole and bariatric surgery and neuro-rehabilitation across East London and beyond.

As a Foundation Trust we are accountable to local people who can become members and governors. We have a duty to consult and involve a board of governors drawn from patients, staff, membership and partner organisations in our strategic planning.

We have earned a reputation for the quality of training offered and are recognised as one of the top recruiters to high quality research studies in the UK with particular interest in neonatology, sexual health and respiratory medicine. We are also recognised as first adpters of methods and systems that promise better and safer patient care.

All of these factors figured when the Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Sir Mike Richards, said "More trusts need to be like Homerton".

New state of the art means of managing patient records and care

ICU kit

The Acute Clinical Excellence (ACE) Programme is the Homerton’s new comprehensive electronic clinical patient record system. This will have vital signs recorded direct from the BP machines and e-prescribing as well as patient documentation for the entire multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, midwives, therapists and pharmacists involved in the treatment of patients. 

This represents the hospital's latest effort to improve patient experience and means safer prescribing and administration, enhanced clinical decision support, improved communication and sharing of information.  

This represents a major investment in a major technological advance in patient record keeping.

Child Protection-Information Sharing (CP-IS) project

As an example of Homerton's early adoption of new systems considered to offer better patient care this is a recent press release referring to a project designed to improve the protection of vulnerable children.

The Child Protection Information Sharing scheme (CP-IS) is a major initiative sponsored by NHS England and led by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), the national provider of information, data and IT systems for commissioners, analysts and clinicians in health and social care. The project links the IT systems of NHS unscheduled care organisations to those used by social care child protection teams. Unscheduled care settings include local authority children’s services (social care), hospital emergency departments, minor injury units, walk-in centres in CCGs/primary care, maternity units, GP out of hours, paediatric wards, and ambulance services.

A central national system holds details of all children who have a child protection plan or are classed as looked-after. National rollout of CP-IS  is planned for completion by 2018 and will connect 1,230 NHS settings and 152 local authorities for the protection of vulnerable children in England.

Homerton is the first NHS care provider organisation to go live with real-time access to the new system. Child protection information is transmitted securely from local authority IT systems to the central NHS Spine and Homerton staff can access the Spine and incorporate CP-IS information into key workflows that notify care providers when they are treating a vulnerable child.

The benefits for patients and staff:

  • Improves assessment of children presenting in unscheduled care settings through access to better supporting information
  • Delivers more focussed communication between social care and health care concerning these groups of children, leading to improved intervention to prevent the ongoing abuse or neglect of a child
  • Builds a stronger more transparent relationship with social care workers due to information being shared on the system
  • Saves time as NHS staff will no longer need to produce lists or enter data manually.
