Somerset NHS Foundation Trust will be using RIVIAM's Digital Immunisations Consent service to go paperless in 2020

With RIVIAM, the Trust can digitise the entire immunisations process.

Somerset NHS Foundation Trust started using RIVIAM in autumn 2019.

Since then, the way the immunisations team gives children in Somerset important vaccinations has been transformed, improving patient care, saving the Trust money and reducing risks.

“Parents have also told us that they like the new online consent form as they find it quick and easy to complete online.” Suzy Mason, Team Leader at Somerset NHS Foundation Trust's School Aged Immunisation Nursing Team

Mobile app for nurses

In October 2020, the Trust was one of the first to use our immunisations app for delivery of the flu programme.

With the app, immunisations nurses have secure access to clinic lists of children with their associated consents and triage history on their device. Clinics can be undertaken regardless of internet connection. When the app is online, it automatically updates the vaccination outcomes in RIVIAM.

“Our team of nurses is very pleased to be able to use the mobile application as it’s much quicker and gives us that extra time to spend with children and schools.

We’ve also found that the app is user friendly and our nurses find it easy to use. It’s a really safe way of storing all the vital consent information about each child and has also reduced our triage and administration time. ”
Suzy Mason, Team Leader at Somerset NHS Foundation Trust's School Aged Immunisation Nursing Team
