Please see attached policy (paragraph 3.8). Please note, this policy relates to Queen Elizabeth Hospital only. The hospitals that formed the former Heart of England Foundation Trust (Heartlands, Good Hope, and Solihull Hospitals) do not currently have any policy or guidance relating to witnessing resuscitation in place.

All policies are currently in the process of being aligned.

 I have noticed that a few of your trust’s VNA clinical systems with Agfa have expired in 31-03-2019.

May I ask if the system above has a new contract expiration date and are they annually renewed?

Please let me know if they are still in use and if not, what supplier systems have replaced them.

The Heartlands, Good Hope, and Solihull Hospital VNA was an archiving component within their Agfa PACS contract which has been extended until 31/12/2019. However a new VNA contract for all UHB sites has been signed with Carestream Health and is due to commence in July 2019 for an initial 5 year term.
