HealthRoster Optima deployed to e-roster staff at NHS Nightingale Hospital London

We wanted to share with all customers that the HealthRoster Optima SaaS solution has been deployed in just 9 days to deliver rostering for up to 30k staff at the 4000-bed field hospital in London.

Responding to the request for support the Allocate team have been privileged to work alongside colleagues from the NHS, Ministry of Defence and KPMG to deliver a solution that will both roster and track live operational staff attendance.  Additionally, the Allocate team will be providing 247 operational roster management both onsite and remotely.

NHS Nightingale Hospital London is a hospital facility dedicated to caring for COVID-19 patients, it is said to be the world’s largest critical care hospital. Based at London’s ExCel centre in Docklands it will relieve pressure from key London hospitals.

Our team has been working with customers globally over the past few weeks in the wake of Covid-19 to step up our support as you seek to prepare and respond with changes in absence management, emergency rotas, new units and additional care demand alongside an increase in over staff absence through sickness and self-isolation.

A message from Nick Wilson, Allocate CEO

“I am completely inspired by the way in which the NHS is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have over 800 health, care and defence customers globally, it is entirely right that our whole team is pivoted to support them in all the ways that we can as they respond to this national and international emergency.

It is a privilege to play a part in NHS Nightingale Hospital London. I am proud of the speed at which we have been able to collaborate and act. I am also grateful to my teams who have, and will continue to, share their expertise and hard work with all customers.  We are responding to a further seven field hospital requests in the UK and are involved in early discussions in Germany and Australia. We will of course share our learning to help all those involved in delivering field hospitals.”
