“LifeBox offered training for individuals and small groups of staff and we did a lot of hospital internal communications about it. We encouraged ward nurses to be involved in the pre-assessment so that when they went back on the wards they used their knowledge to help other nursing staff and knew the challenges that the pre-assessment nurses faced – it wasn’t just about one department using it.”

Claire Manley, outpatient’s services manager at St John and St Elizabeth Hospital, London.

“Our launch and use of LifeBox digital health technology has digitised our entire patient pre-operative assessment service, making it more efficient, eliminating the need for unnecessary hospital visits, and significantly reducing risks for patients undergoing surgery. It has proved an invaluable tool during the COVID crisis, supporting the safe triage process of NHS patients needing clinically-urgent surgery at our hospital which has become a ‘hub’ for the region.”

David Eglington, hospital director at The Montefiore Hospital, Hove
