The cabling division of Portsmouth IT and telecoms business easyNetworks has been working flat out to install network hardware to connect systems at key NHS sites in recent weeks.
easyNetworks provides a specialist cabling service to customers such as Solent NHS Trust, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and care home operator Sentinel Health Care to deliver essential connectivity to medical facilities. Recently this has included cabling the COVID-19 mass vaccination centres at St James Hospital in Portsmouth, University Health Centre, Southampton and Basingstoke Fire Station as well as network installations in the COVID-19 “hot zones” of Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth.
Managing Director and founder of easyNetworks Richard Gwilliam says of the work being done to connect these facilities:
“I am delighted that our cabling teams have been able to respond to the demands of our NHS and care home customers during the pandemic. Reliable computer networks are a core part of any medical site and installing them promptly but safely has been a major priority for our customers. We partner with NHS trusts at a high level and understand their specific requirements, and we’re particularly proud of the work we have done at the vaccination centres to help get them open to the public in a very short time. As a business, one of our core values is to make a difference and we’re happy to be doing exactly that for NHS patients and care home residents throughout the region.”
Mark Young, Associate Director of Estates Transformation at Solent NHS Trust, thanked easyNetworks for its efforts:
“Thank you and your team for your outstanding support. Your recent work in support of the conversion of buildings to create vaccination centres has played a critical part in ensuring these buildings are open, operational and delivering much anticipated vaccine to the population as quickly as possible.”
As well as supplying the medical sector throughout Hampshire, easyNetworks is a trusted provider to the education sector including St Edmund’s Catholic School, Portsmouth; Fareham College and the University of Portsmouth, to food businesses such as Vitacress Salads in Andover, and to major infrastructure such as Portsmouth International Port and the D-Day Story visitor attraction on Southsea seafront.
