The Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust (RCHT) employs five thousand people at three hospitals. Early in 2020, the Trust was chosen to be a Phase 2 trial site for the LAMP test — a simple all-in-one saliva test to detect Covid-19, giving results in 30 minutes, offering huge potential for mass testing.
Of course, the Trust already had Covid-19 testing in place to be sure staff were safe to be at work. All of their staff were regularly taking lateral flow tests and entering their test results on a system based on Microsoft 365. This was working, but the system wasn’t built to allow the Trust to record LAMP test results too.
Weeks to launch LAMP tests
The LAMP trial was starting in literally a few weeks. The Trust’s e-Health Transformation Manager knew about Liberty Create, our low-code platform, and how is it used to build apps ten times as fast as usual. The Trust approached Netcall to see if they could build a new solution together in time for the first LAMP tests.
“Using Liberty Create has opened our eyes to the potential of low-code. As we work with Netcall across a wide range of transformational activities, we will consider how else this can be used.”
