PERFORMANCE: Psychiatry doctors in training in London now have a huge record of documents, policies and guidance at their fingers through the introduction of a trust-developed app.

The app replaces hundreds of pages of online documents stored on North East London Foundation Trust’s intranet and internet.

Three academics at the FT developed the app in partnership with IT students from Barking and Dagenham College, who were commissioned to provide the technical platform.

Trust chief executive John Brouder said the NELFT Doctors on Call Support app is believed to be the first of its kind in the UK.
