Berkshire NHS Mobile Working – 4G for home visits

Nurses across Berkshire are beginning to take advantage of faster mobile connectivity in a new project supported by EE.

The Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust employs 4,000 members of staff, and provides specialist mental health and community health services to a population of around 900,000 within the South East county.

Under the umbrella of the trust sits over 100 sites, including Prospect Park Hospital, community hospitals, GP surgeries and clinics, with 263 mental health inpatient beds and almost 200 community hospital beds across five locations.
