Glow begin third SafeTeam pilot at Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
24 May 2023
Glow’s innovative SafeTeam Lone Worker technology is to be deployed at Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (LUHFT) for a non clinical pilot evaluation.
The technology has already been proven in previous NHS pilots and has gone on to be adopted for full scale commercial use at another NHS trust, where it has dramatically improved compliance, improving ease of use and safety.
The Pilot project has also been supported by a successful award from The Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) under their highly competitive Cross Cluster Proof of Concept competition. This competition assists innovative technology research which crosses over between fields of research such as Health, Sustainability, Digital and Space.
The project aims to deploy the SafeTeam platform for a busy NHS trust where it will improve safety and create entirely new visibility of CO2E for their Grey Fleet. The project will also undertake research to build on this new data and create improvements in carbon use, particularly through team behaviours and improvements in routing. This will drive demonstration of novel technology and validate it in a systems context, with the opportunity for high growth potential and further adoption of the previously commercialised SafeTeam platform.
Phil Blything said:
It’s really exciting to be able to build on the existing SafeTeam platform, creating entirely new data, helping NHS address really difficult NetZero challenges. Working across all four cluster themes of Health, Sustainability, Digital and Space is a real privilege and we’re already seeing the potential of the research output.
SafeTeam, named “one to watch by UK DIT in the 2023 Health Playbook has previously achieved exemplary results from rigorous scientific testing by the National Physical Laboratory.
