One of the largest collaborations currently underway in the Public Sector is the joining up of Health and Social Care through the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).
This collaboration is underpinned by multi-agency working across both NHS and Local Authority owned sites. In Kent, Govroam is accessible at 6 hospitals, several healthy living centres, Local Authority social care sites and a growing number of Mental Healthcare units.
The seamless connectivity Govroam provides is supporting not only the ongoing work of the STP management in building this relationship but will continue to grow to support the ongoing multi-agency work as the STP matures.
Medway Community Health
Medway Community Health (MCH) is rolling out Govroam and Eduroam to four Healthy Living Centres, Medway Maritime Hospital and other NHS sites.
Govroam will provide MCH with a robust Wi-Fi solution to replace their current corporate Wi-Fi and will allow their mobile staff to access the internet and corporate network using secure two factor authentication.
MCH also plan to facilitate colleges at Medway Foundation Trust who work out of these sites, and are excited to see how Eduroam will benefit their student nurses.
East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust
East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) have deployed Govroam to all of their acute hospitals across Kent. They have done this as a separate installation to the KPSN service.
This has provided KPSN with a new set of opportunities to work together on connection testing with Partners outside of the Partnership service. This has resulted in further learning across the Partnership and a number of changes to help KPSN better support users visiting from outside the service.
“Govroam will help us get rid of our aging corporate SSID and we expect it to make a big difference for our mobile staff and especially student nurses via Eduroam.”
Stephen Fuller – IT Business Relationship manager, Medway Community Health
