Pathology Services Meet the team Find us Contact us

Welcome to the Patholopgy Department at Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Trust.

pathology directorate provides comprehensive laboratory services in support of diagnosis, monitoring and treatment for patients within the Trusts hospitals and clinics, and for family practitioners within the local primary care trusts (PCTs). The directorate is made up of four major disciplines: Cellular pathology (histopathology/cytology) Microbiology/infection control Blood sciences (haematology/clinical biochemistry/immunology) Blood transfusion All of these provide analytical, diagnostic and advisory services to their users. Analysis of specimens takes place within laboratories at Calderdale Royal Hospital and at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, which are managed as a single unit. Cellular pathology is located at Calderdale Royal Hospital and microbiology at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary. Blood sciences and blood transfusion are on both sites. The directorate also provides an in-patient and out-patient phlebotomy (blood sampletaking) service at both of the Trusts hospitals, and at certain clinics and surgeries within the community.

Anticoagulation Service

The Haematology department supports the provision of an out patient oral anticoagulation monitoring service across the Trust. The service does NOT prescribe, dose or issue low molecular weight Heparin, this is the responsibility of the ward or patients GP. The department, based at HRI, uses the nationally accredited computerised dosage support system DAWN AC, which is networked between the services. Huddersfield area patients Patients discharged from the wards who have been started on Warfarin therapy, or patients who have been referred for induction of Warfarin therapy by a consultant or GP are seen at the out patient clinic. This is held in the Out patient department at HRI and is situated on corridor 4 on the ground floor. The clinic is held from 08.45-11.30 on Monday and Thursday mornings. New patients will be seen by a pharmacist who will advise on Warfarin and its interactions. Blood tests are done by finger prick and dosing done by a Biomedical Scientist, although a Haematology registrar attends on Thursday mornings to deal with new/problem patients.

I find visiting hospitals a stressful experience? Wouldnt it be great if you could have outpatient appointments in your own home?

My diary is full and I cant find any time to go to hospital, what can I do?

I find outpatients very helpful. Why dont you try Telehealth!

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust are about to embark on an ambitious journey to offer our patients the opportunity to attend outpatient appointments remotely by using one of our Telehealth options.

What is Telehealth? In its broadest sense it is the delivery of health care services through the use of a variety of telecommunications technology. What do you need? If you are interested in taking part of a radical new pilot you will need access to the following technology: Access to a PC, Laptop, Tablet Access to a Webcam Access to the Internet A telephone What will it mean? If appropriate your next outpatient appointment will be carried out remotely using one of our telehealth options without the need for you to be seen in hospital.

CAN I TRY Telehealth?


If you are interested in taking part in this pilot please fill in the details below and pass it to one of our receptionists: Name: Consultant: Telephone Number: Email Address:

The network is open to CHFT devices only, for access to your personal and organisation data. If you require the service then please log a call with the service desk on 2600 and ask to be enabled for wireless working in HRI and CRH. You will need your username and also the host name of your laptop (this can be found by clicking on the Display Info icon on your desktop or alternatively the Service Desk personnel can advise). Please note, this will take up to 5 days to complete and you will need to connect your device to the wired network to receive the required updates. Unfortunately at this time, no other devices (either personal or from other organisations) can be granted wireless access. This is planned in a further rollout of the Wireless across all CHFT owned sites.

Virtual Private Network


It all starts with the VPN (Virtual Private Network) Concentrator Cisco has been a leader in remote access VPNs since 1999; and its latest release, the AnyConnect Secure Mobility Solution (part of Ciscos Borderless Network initiative), has been rolled out across our customer base. AnyConnect allows customers to remotely access their organisations network from home, giving them access to personal and shared drives, clinical systems and the Microsoft Office suite. Using up-to-date software has allowed us to provide a remote access solution for mobile devices that is far above industry standards. The project is almost complete and we currently have over 1200 end user devices registered on this system. We have been able to accomplish this with the help of our technical staff, server team and service account managers. For more information please contact your Service Account Manager. Richard Hill Infrastructure Team richard.hill@this.nhs.uk

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure


Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is the practice of hosting a desktop operating system within a virtual machine (VM) running on a centralised server. The NHS is a complex environment with a multitude of different systems that are used across many disciplines. Our technicians are currently working with our customers to research where VDI would be appropriate and where it would add value or create efficiencies. This type of infrastructure requires a significant capital investment so understanding the long term benefits is essential. The areas where VDI shine are: Data Security: Keeping data within the confines of the data centre improves security. Reduced Hardware Expenditure: Consolidation and reduced upgrade cycles minimise hardware costs for server and customer side equipment. Easier Management: Centralised patching and application installation or streaming without loading the network. Mobile Workforce: User desktops are portable, users can reconnect from any location with a variety of devices. VDI technology will become much more common in the future along with virtualised server platforms and Cloud services. THIS will continue to share the benefits of these new technologies to improve the end user experience. Rob Birkett, Head of Enterprise Services robert.birkett@this.nhs.uk

During November staff at Oak House celebrated the month of Movember with a number of Mo Bros who had grown a moustache to raise funds to help change the future of mens health and raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer. The day was celebrated with a quiz and a buffet lunch. Richard Hill (organiser) helped to raise 270 which included website sponsors and donations made on the day. Neil Talbot-Paterson, the Oak House winner, was presented with a sash and goodies by Mandy Griffin, Chief Operating Officer who herself sported a moustache for the occasion. Of course the real message is about our ability to walk the talk in that we have a greater responsibility for our own health and well-being as NHS employees when compared with other members of the public.

Social Media
The Health Informatics Service has agreed a proposal with Dan Evans Consulting to understand how we maximise our reach and influence using social media. The objective is to understand how the integration of social media into our business model will provide the opportunity to engage with clients, prospective clients, thought leaders, project teams, the media and industry bodies in a more strategic way. The purpose of this work will be to develop and implement a strategy that harnesses social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Blog. A team of 6 early adopters will contribute to a programme that will optimise and integrate into our business the following social media platforms: LinkedIn company page including Products and Services LinkedIn individual profiles for the contributors Twitter Company Profiles Twitter individual profiles for the contributors Company Blog The team will be responsible for agreeing the social media strategy for THIS and how we maximise the benefits across the business.

CHFT Clinical Systems Strategy


an electronic record with seamless integration of systems both within and external to the hospital setting. This has been partly achieved using PASweb, ICE Order Entry and others. However, evidence would suggest that continuing to use existing systems in this way is unlikely to achieve an integrated record. Examples could include digitising case notes and using ehealth applications to provide remote care to patients in different settings. In order to progress this piece of work, Dave Lang IM&T Modernisation Programme Director has been working with CHFTs IM&T Strategy Group to formulate a plan in order to achieve these benefits. The plan was presented to CHFTs Executive Board on Monday 14th January 2013 which resulted in all the recommendations being approved. Dave Lang, Programme Director dave.lang@this.nhs.uk

THIS Staff Awards 2012


The 2012 Staff Awards was held at The John Smiths Stadium, Huddersfield on 20th December 2012. The awards are the one occasion each year when the whole organisation gets together to celebrate the success and achievements of that year, and give special recognition to teams and individuals that have gone above and beyond their call of duty. Over 200 nominations were received from service users and members of The Health Informatics Service. Nominations were welcomed for the following 5 categories selected by the Executive Team: Excellence in Customer Service Innovation and Service Improvement Most Effective Team Excellence in Leadership Employee of the year A panel of judges, representing all areas and levels of the service, met in December to select a winner for each category and award special commendations to those nominees who had not won but were strong contenders within their nominated category. The Executive Team had the privilege of selecting the winner for the Quality Champion, who is chosen from those individuals who have been awarded the monthly champion during the year and have shown continued commitment to THIS. John Rayner presents his personal award to the individual he believes brings something special to the organisation. This award is in memory of our dear colleague, John Hodgson.

An Interview with Our Employee of the Year


Describe your role in The Health Informatics Service I am the manager of the Web Development Team, which consists of 6 Web Developers/Designers and I am also heavily involved with the Software Development Team that develops and maintains Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trusts clinical systems.

Tom Amos

The Web Development Team supports both internal and external requests for website/intranet builds and also requests for web based applications. The daily duties range from offering support to users of our websites, fixing any bugs in our sites and applications, organising and prioritising our workload, scouting for and securing new business and keeping everyone on their toes! I manage a team of great individuals who have a varied skill set to pull from when picking the right approach for a customer request. I support the Software Development Team in the development of systems. Past developments have included the first version of the PASWeb portal, the Trusts main Patient Administration System which is an integral part of the Trusts day to day operations. We have also developed the electronic discharge and GP copy letter modules. What do you most enjoy about your role? The diversity of my role is what makes it really interesting and a massive challenge. One minute I can be meeting potential customers and going through what web services we can offer them. Then in the next hour I could be dealing with clinical developments, like the patient self-check-in kiosks or the capturing of stroke data from the bedside.

For the 8th year running THIS was able to share in its success and publically say Thank you to all its colleagues. Congratulations to all of our deserving winners: Excellence in Customer Service James Gardiner Innovation & Service Improvement Bernie Hepper Most Effective Team Network Services Team Excellence in Leadership Jeannette Law Employee of the Year Tom Amos Quality Champion Abdullah Zahoor John Hodgson Award Jason Cresswell & Gawaine Carter. Mandy Griffin, Chief Operating Officer mandy.griffin@this.nhs.uk

What is your background in the NHS? I started with THIS in 2006 on the Service Desk when the Service Desk consisted of only 4 members of staff! After 10 months on the Service Desk I moved to the Web Development Team as an Assistant Developer. It was through this role that I was introduced to the Software Development Team and I eventually moved over to work with them on building a web based clinical portal which is the current PASWeb. After a few years in software land the opportunity arose to come back and manage the Web Development Team. I have been in my current management role since March 2012. Tom Amos, Web Development Manager tom.amos@this.nhs.uk

We have undertaken 4 or 5 reviews in recent years and in doing so we have always been able to learn from colleagues who at times encounter difficulty with the services that they provide. It is always a privilege and an honour to undertake work such as this We understand that our colleagues at the Trust are and to recognise the need delighted with the work our coders are doing and to be courteous and our own Clinical respectful when Coding Team have spending time in a continued to meet neighbouring Trust.

In response to this request, we agreed a support package that has seen four of our clinical coders working off site in order to provide first hand a professional and high quality service.

Clinical Coding Collaboration In October 2012 we were approached by a local NHS organisation for help in addressing a backlog of un-coded Finished Consultant Episodes, i.e. admitted patient care, outpatient attendances, accident and emergency attendances and some outpatient procedures. Un-coded episodes can result in a loss of income.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust I was privileged to be invited by Brian Miller, Chief Executive of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, to review some of the IM&T services within the hospital that were a cause for concern to the Chief Executive and members of the Trust Board.

National Pathology Exchange (NPEx) User Group


Monday 5th November 2012 saw the inaugural NPEx User Group take place in Bredbury Hall, Manchester. The event was co-hosted by THIS and X-Lab Limited and saw over 80 NPEx users from up and down the country unite to share experiences, best practice and to consider future developments of the solution. The day was chaired by Jeff Seneviratne - Chair of the Greater Manchester Pathology Network with the keynote address delivered by Ian Barnes - National Clinical Director for Pathology at the Department of Health whose session focused upon Reconfiguration of Pathology Services. In addition the NPEx developers from XLab carried out a number of facilitated workshops exploring a variety of technical and business orientated themes whilst considering and exploring a number of potential system developments. The inaugural event was extremely successful and as a result THIS & XLab Limited NPEx Management Board has agreed that this event will be held annually. The day was very well received by the delegates: Neil McAuley, Biochemist Technical Manager, Pennine Acute Trust It was an informative and useful day. It was especially useful being able to network with other users and meet the NPEx Team Chris Dunne General Manager - Informatics chris.dunne@this.nhs.uk

Collaborative Working

Leadership Development
I would like to think that we work in an organisation that values strong and effective leadership and that our commitment to the leadership cause has stood us in good stead over the years. The Health Informatics Service has been instrumental in working with others across the region to develop and facilitate a number of high quality personal and organisational development programmes. More latterly THIS has been the sole provider of the highly successful Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) which is now running for the 5th consecutive year. ELP is specifically aimed at those working in middle management positions as well as those managers who are new to the NHS. As well as providing an opportunity to consider personal leadership, the management of teams, customer service and future trends, the ELP has created a superb network across Yorkshire and the Humber which continues long after delegates have attended the four modules. I am delighted that NHS YaTH has recognised the value of the ELP and has agreed an investment portfolio that will see the programme continue for the next 3 years. NHS YaTH has always been committed to supporting leadership development and as such has also invested in a Senior Leadership Development Programme for those working at Assistant Director level and immediately below. The next Emerging Leaders Programme will commence in February 2013 with the Senior Leadership Programme beginning late summer. THIS will continue to be instrumental in delivering both of these programmes. John Rayner, Director john.rayner@this.nhs.uk

Whats happening to hospital services in our community?

Read our FAQs: Frequently asked questions about proposed changes to hospital services at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals.

You wont have enough beds.

TRUE OR FALSE

FALSE We have carefully taken account of the growing number of elderly people, and the overall population growth and believe we need fewer beds. We are confident that we have got the right number because: under our proposals we would be working more efficiently, with services grouped together, instead of being scattered around different sites. the average length of stay for patients has been coming down and is continuing to do so.

Dewsbury Hospital needs a consultant-led maternity unit because of the high infant mortality rate in North Kirklees.

TRUE OR FALSE

FALSE Antenatal (before the birth) and postnatal care (after the baby is born) has the most important effect on the outcome for the baby. This would continue to be provided locally across all three sites and in the community. We will continue to actively encourage women to take up this care.
