They will set out the evidence and describe the DH’s recommendations, both to the NHS and industry, for uptake and use of the GS1 coding system plus the importance of standardisation as a basis for introducing coding effectively in patient care. They will give real life case studies to demonstrate the real difference effective use of coding can make to patients with reference to safe patient identification and blood transfusion safety.

14.30 NHS Trust procurement case study: Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and the NHS Procurement eEnablement Delivery Group (NPEDG) Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTH) is the largest Trust in the UK and includes the largest teaching hospital in Europe. They provide high quality acute hospital services for the population of Leeds and the surrounding area and act as a regional centre for a number of specialist services such as cancer and cardiac surgery. At the end of 2000 LTH incorporated bar code scanning in their catheter labs which allows clinical staff to get a ‘real-time’ picture of stock levels. Graham will explain how the system allows information to be scanned not only into a stock inventory system but into the EPR and the finance database. This ensures that every piece of equipment can be traced to every patient and an accurate costing of all procedures can be established.

Chris Slater, Chair of NHS Procurement Enablement Delivery Group will explain how the NPEDG is driving forward the adoption of procurement Enablement technologies across the NHS supply network. He will run through how the NPEP provide a range of initiatives and guidance to drive forward the adoption of procurement eEnablement technologies in the NHS to improve patient safety. Chris will also provide an overview of NPEP and why they have adopted the GS1 System of standards.
