This month, City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust celebrates its 25th anniversary as a MEDITECH customer. To commemorate the occasion, Sunderland staff gathered for cake and photographs, taking a moment to look back on 25 years of partnership with MEDITECH.

Over the past few decades, Sunderland has optimized MEDITECH’s solutions to emerge as a leading healthcare provider in the UK. Apart from being the first UK site to use e-prescribing, Sunderland achieved coveted Global Digital Exemplar status in April 2017.

“The implementation of MEDITECH has played a pivotal role in the success of our organisation and the treatment of our patients,” said Andrew Hart, director of information Management and technology​ at City Hospitals Sunderland ​​​​​and South Tyneside Foundation NHS Trust.

“The latest Informatics strategy across the NHS aims to expedite delivery of its ‘paper-free at the point of care’ objectives. CHS has been identified as a leader in the health digital field in England, and our level of success, and future ambition, is in no small way attributable to the Trust’s successful deployment and use of the MEDITECH solution.”
