How digitalisation within Portering has increased Radiology throughput


Ever since the digitalisation of their portering system, Northampton General Hospital’s Radiology Department has seen remarkable improvements with patient throughput. Their move to digitalisation encourages better communication between the Portering and Radiology team, leading to closer collaboration between departments and overall better patient care.


Paul Barritt, Security & Portering Manager said: “It’s not just a case of ‘This is the product, there you go – just try your best and apply it to what you’ve got’ - it really can be adjusted to how your Trust is, in terms of the layout, the specialities that you’ve got, it’s a really great system that we enjoy using”, adding: “The figures that we have around are about 10-12% increase in patient flow through the portering department’s patient transfers.”


“The biggest impact MyPorter has had on Northampton General Hospital is on the Radiology Department. We’re moving a lot more patients through CTs, MRIs” Chris Hurved, Portering Co-Ordinator added.


Joshua Combs, Deputy Superintendent Radiographer said: “after three weeks, we had an 8.6% increase in throughput throughout X-rays.”
