With a drive to reduce costs and increase efficiency, against a backdrop of steadily increasing patient numbers, many NHS Trusts across the country are faced with the challenge of how to achieve these objectives without compromising essential front-line services or standards of patient care. Many Trusts, like Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, have taken the opportunity to look at printing functions as a way to tackle this agenda and have found that substantial savings can be made. As part of a series of trustwide measures to help contribute to its Cost Improvement Program (CIP), the deployment of print management solution SafeCom - from Nuance Communications - has enabled the Trust to achieve commendable back-office print savings of over $560,000 in two years.
