South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust wins highly commended at Allocate Awards 2018


The Trust has been praised for its implementation of a rostering system which was tailored to meet the needs of different staff groups and ensured all staff had access to the benefits of the system, gaining national recognition at the prestigious Allocate Awards 2018.

The team was presented with the highly commended award in the whole workforce models category. The award was presented by Chief Executive Officer of Allocate Software, Nick Wilson at the annual Allocate Awards and black-tie gala dinner at the Lancashire County Cricket Club, Emirates Old Trafford, on the evening of 17 October 2018.

Allocate Software created the awards to recognise excellence delivered across the healthcare sector, to make a difference for patients and staff.

Speaking about the awards, Allocate Software CEO, Nick Wilson, said: “We believe that in sharing what our customer community has achieved and how it has done so, we will undoubtedly inspire and benefit other colleagues, departments, organisations, regions and countries.”

Allocate Software is a leading international provider of workforce solutions, supporting the operational and administrative needs of healthcare professionals in all healthcare settings. Enabling the delivery of safe and effective care at optimal cost, by having the right people in the right place at the right time.

Clare Marie Dickson (Nursing Modernisation Manager for Workforce & Education) said: “The progression from e-rostering nursing staff to multi-professional rostering within the Prison Healthcare setting is the first of its kind for the Trust. The early success of this implementation is such that it is hoped that this Workforce Model can be replicated across other service areas.”
