Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has signed a £107m seven-year deal for IT products and hosting.

The deal, which was awarded to Belfast-headquartered managed cloud specialist Novosco, covers a refresh of end-user computing devices and printers, as well as networking infrastructure. It also provides for the installation of platforms for application hosting.

The trust – which is one of 16 nominated by NHS England as Global Digital Exemplars – will also be supported by the IT firm in its delivery of digital health programmes, including its Epic electronic patient record system.

Director of digital Dr Jag Ahluwalia said: “We are pleased to confirm our new partnership with Novosco, and look forward to working with them to meet the next set of challenges we face in our ambitious and ongoing plan to improve healthcare through technology. The further digital development of our hospital is central to improving care for our patients, and providing a better experience for our staff.”

The trust runs Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge, as well as the Rosie Maternity Hospital. It employs almost 10,000 staff and admitted 65,475 patients to its hospitals last year, as well as visiting more than 750,000 outpatients.

Novosco posted group revenue of £23.3m in the 2016 calendar year, its annual accounts reveal. In addition to its Belfast HQ, the firm also has offices in Manchester and Dublin. 

Managing director Patrick McAliskey said: “CUH is regarded as one of the leading lights in healthcare digital transformation in the UK and we are delighted that they have chosen Novosco to provide these vitally important IT services.”
