The new facility has been fitted out with high speed internet connections, advanced telephony system and secure IT infrastructure to ensure patient information is protected and safe. The team will also be welcoming new staff recruited locally as the administration of the service transfers from EMIS Cares HQ in Worcester, England to Cork.
Already offering screening to over 55 000 patients across 17 counties, the programme continues to grow by over 500 patients per month. This change will help the team deal with the future growth of the programme. The new facilities will give service users an easy, reliable and efficient booking system.
