HRCH bags paperless award for e-consent innovation

Paperless Awards 2019 - Winner Logo resized 2.jpg

17 July 2019


We have won yet another award – this time for the best use of e-forms in the national Public Sector Paperless Awards.

Our entry highlighted the significant improvements the HRCH immunisations team accomplished by moving the consent process for school-age immunisations online.

Between September 2017 and January 2018 the team collected more than 130,000 paper consent forms across 500 schools in south London.

Now, the new e-consent forms not only reduce paper and save time, they are more secure to store, reduce the number of illegible forms and make better use of existing channels, such as Parent Mail.

The same system was used for our 2018 staff flu campaign, giving us real-time data, which meant we could adapt our approach to target specific groups of staff with catch up clinics and improve overall uptake.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the project!
