ZetaSafe can help NHS Managers implement Carter Review recommendations.
The report and recommendations of the Carter Review, which was published in February 2016, has become a gospel for NHS managers.
According to www.nhsemployers.org , “The report acknowledges that although there is exceptional practice already happening in the NHS, the overall average is not sufficient and more needs to be done to bring poor performance up to meet the best. Employers and workforce leaders play a crucial role in this. The report identified significant and unwarranted variation in costs and practice which, if addressed, could save the NHS £5bn.”

If you are a NHS Estate, Asset or Facilities Manager, in charge of a complex and varied estate you may well wonder how to put his recommendations into practice.
Fortunately for you, ZetaSafe squarely addresses some of the key issues raised in the Carter Review:
- ‘Lowering the total estates and facilities running costs per area.’
- ‘To optimize quality and efficiency across the entire care pathway, a single version of the truth and an integrated performance framework is critical.’
- ‘Requires hospitals to improve their use of modern digital technology.’
- ‘The best performing hospital systems around the world have real-time monitoring and reporting at their fingertips enabling them to make decision on a daily, weekly, monthly basis to improve quality and efficiency performance.’
Below we demonstrate how ZetaSafe effectively addresses these challenges.
1. ‘Lowering the total estates and facilities running costs per area.’
- Visibility of risks throughout an organisation makes it possible to stretch limited budgets, drive down costs, reduce risks and plan more effectively by giving a clear account of its overall compliance status and activities, which often leads to poor, ineffective, costly and inconsistent decision making.
- Increase the productivity of your own staff and contractors.
- Saves time, cuts costs and allows workers to complete tasks more efficiently.
