Dakota Ensures WYAAT NHS Hospital Trusts Are GS1 Compliant

26th March 2021

Part of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership, the West Yorkshire Association of Acute Trusts (WYAAT) is an innovative collaboration which brings together the NHS Trusts that deliver acute hospital services across West Yorkshire and Harrogate.

Dedicated to enabling local hospitals to work in partnership with one another to give patients in the area access to the very best facilities and staff, the WYAAT collaboration is made up of six hospitals, two of which are the Airedale NHS Foundation Trust and the Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Treating around 32,000 inpatients, 31,000 non-elective patients, 144,000 outpatients and 70,000 emergency patients every year, the Airedale NHS Foundation is an award-winning hospital and community services trust providing high quality, specialist and community care for a population of over 200,000 people from a widespread area covering 700 square miles within Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is responsible for providing hospital services for the people of Bradford and communities across Yorkshire, serving a core population of around 500,000 people and providing specialist services for some 1.1 million people.

However, when the Airedale and Bradford NHS Trusts
needed to introduce a system in order to ensure
compliance with the UK Government’s Scan4Safety
initiative, they engaged with Dakota to help them
achieve this.
