In 2006, NHS Greater Glasgow and the Clyde area of NHS Argyll and Clyde combined to form NHS GG&C. Forming one of the largest health providers in Western Europe, NHS GG&C provides healthcare services to over 1.2 million people and employs more than 40,000 staff.
The newly formed board was using seven different Estates Management software systems, all of which were heavily paper based. Following a full system review, it was decided that the existing systems should be consolidated into one centralised system. The decision was taken to expand the use of Asckey Data Services fmfirst® product suite across the whole of the newly formed Health Board. The DataFlex powered fmfirst® software solution had already been in operation in some hospitals within the health board since early 2011, and has proven to be reliable and user friendly, providing targeted functionality and intuitive integration with web and mobile capabilities.
