Hospitals in Hull and Cottingham are to trial state-of-the-art hand-held software.

Staff at Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham will use the special devices to record patients’ vital details, such as blood pressure and heart rate.

The trial is a result of a £950,000 grant which was awarded to The Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Hospital Trust by the national Nurse Technology Fund.

Staff will use the devices for eight weeks so those behind the technology can monitor how effective they are before a more widespread rollout.

Steve Jessop, for The Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Hospital Trust, explained that ordinarily, results of regular checks are recorded on paper charts but the new trial will see iPads used to record and store statistics.

The details are stored on a secure database which can be made instantly available to other staff who need to care for the patient.
