Rotherham Hospital bosses are to spend up to £750,000 over the next four years on new technology.

New software will be purchased in a bid to improve staff management practices and reduce reliance on agency staff.

The eRostering software will centralise information about shift patterns, annual leave, sickness absence and the movement of staff between wards.

It is hoped it will enable managers to quickly build rotas to meet patient demand on a day by day basis.

Chris Holt, Chief Operating Officer for The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The trust is just one of 18 acute hospitals in England not to already use eRostering.

“Introducing eRostering will instantly make a difference to how we provide local people with the best care possible.”
