Herefordshire and Worcestershire Breast Screening joins Insignia 

Insignia Medical Systems is pleased to announce a new PACS contract with the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Breast Screening Service, based at the Princess of Wales Community Hospital in Bromsgrove. 

This project comes as an extension to Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust existing Insignia InSight PACS which delivers radiology services across the entire county of Worcestershire.
The Herefordshire and Worcestershire Breast Screening Service, based at the Princess of Wales Community Hospital in Bromsgrove, provides breast screening and assessment services across a large region including Worcester, Redditch, Kidderminster and Hereford.

The project, which is due to go live in early September, will see the migration of approximately 8.5 years’ worth of data, and the addition of screening modalities located at Bromsgrove and Hereford. The Insignia PACS will provide full desktop integration with the National Breast Screening System (NBSS) and support both screening and assessment images. 

Commenting on the new contract, Victoria Sherratt, Project Manager, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, “The Insignia team have been brilliant to work with during the project. Julie Guest has been a pleasure to work with as well as extremely organised, clear and efficient. Insignia have been very supportive during the project, going above and beyond for us.”

Insignia Medical Systems, Project Manager, Julie Guest, who has been managing the go-live with the Trust, commented “Bringing the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Breast Screening Service together with the rest of the Trust will help provide a joined up approach to image sharing across the Trusts multiple sites. It’s been a pleasure working with such a committed team who are clearly dedicated to improving patient care within their region.”
