VerseOne is pleased to announce winning Staffing Solution of the year at the Integrated Health Awards. We entered the Intranet solution created for Birmingham Women’s and Children's Hospital (BWC).
The Integrated Health Awards focus on transformation, improvement and positive change within the healthcare sector and each year there is strong competition for the awards.
The main driver for the Intranet project for BWC was to encourage higher levels of staff engagement, with personalised experience, an improved search function and an intuitive resource for content to support staff in their roles.
Chris Davies, Director of Communications and Engagement at BWC, said: “We are all very pleased to have won this award for our Trust intranet. It was a great project to work on and we look forward to continually developing the platform to support colleagues across BWC.”
VerseOne delivered this award winning project last year and has had lots of great feedback including an increase in adoption from staff at the Trust.
Dan King - Head of Customer accounts said:
“From the very start of the project all the way through to go live it was evident that this project was going to be a real show case and example of what true staff engagement should look like.
During mock-up stages the BWC team continuously involving different stakeholders to get their views and the end result is an intranet that really benefited from this approach. Excitingly, this project marks the first phase of the intranet and BWC are already looking how to keep building upon the great work already delivered.”
If you have been inspired by the BWC Intranet, please speak to our NHS team, who would be delighted to hear your thoughts on forthcoming projects.

Verseone sought to create a new Intranet for Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
The new Intranet was to encourage higher levels of staff engagement, with personalised experience, an improved search function and an intuitive resource for content to support staff in their roles.
The trust aimed to deliver a personalised experience and so gained staff feedback on what mattered, implementing polls and forms to allow them to have their say, and giving them the option to favourite content so that the interface was personalised to their interests. Gaining stakeholder adoption was a key objective from the start; this was achieved through workshops, beta testing and focus groups. A clear communication plan was set to enable maximum adoption and adoption rates were high as a result. Verseone shares that the design was engaging and easy to navigate; the language speaks directly to the user; and signposting is clear, enabling users to access health and wellbeing along with equality, diversity and inclusion hubs.
Additions for the project are to include new system integrations and staff forums which will allow for a social space on the Intranet.
