The Royal Marsden Trust - Getting more out of ESR
The Royal Marsden Trust in London have been using ESR Employee Self Service for some time and wanted to increase their use of ESR functionality without having to put extra functional learning pressure onto there already pressurised workforce. Over the past six months they have rolled out Conflict of Interest Declarations functionality and given their employees the ability to check their swabbing and antibody tests via the ESR Employee portal.
Conflict of Interest Declarations using ESR
Rolling out Conflict of Interest (COI) functionality using ESR, has resulted in the Trust not only saving money that would have been spent on an external system, but they are also getting all the benefits of recording it directly into ESR through the ESS portal; an added bonus is that the functionality is quick and simple to use.
The feedback I get from the governance team is great. They particularly like the COI notifications that they receive every month
The COI functionality has been in use for a few months now, so the governance team are exploring possible enhancement ideas that they could take to their Regional ESR Special Interest Group meeting that could improve the reporting of COI. These enhancements would make it easier for the governance team to identify and chase up those who have not yet made a declaration, and manage the process locally.
Immunisations and Checks on ESS portal
Using the Immunisations and Checks functionality within the Occupational Health Administrator responsibility, the Trust is recording results for swabbing and antibody tests. Under the type Coronavirus, they are then able to enter the results data.
Their employees can then view this information via their Personal Information Portlet, giving them confidence that their immunisation data is as up to date as possible.
The ESR NHS Systems Integration Team supported the Trust to do the mass position update, speeding up the project time and enabled a swift rollout.
