Nuffield Hospitals standardises desktops as business transformation gathers pace

Nuffield Hospitals, the UK’s largest private sector hospitals group, is standardising on a single build of Windows XP following a deal to buy 1,500 desktop PCs from Dell.

Nuffield Hospitals, the UK’s largest private sector hospitals group, is standardising on a single build of Windows XP following a deal to buy 1,500 desktop PCs from Dell.

The deal with Dell is the latest in a series of projects that will help Nuffield Hospitals cut its costs for most types of operations. Nuffield, which operates 41 hospitals, needs to cut its overheads substantially to be able to bid for set-tariff business from the NHS.

The new Dell OptiPlex GX520 desktops will host a single build to reduce the costs of running Nuffield’s proprietary hospital information systems.

The PCs will be used when Nuffield introduces electronic procurement in the next few months.

Nuffield’s general manager for IT service management Iain Roy said, “Online procurement will evolve in parallel with the expansion of Dell systems across Nuffield Hospitals’ infrastructure. Dell Premier Pages offers customised web pages and price lists that give us great visibility around Dell’s product portfolio.”
