COMMERCIAL: Salisbury Foundation Trust has signed a five year deal with MSoft for the provision of its Bloodhound Fridge Lock Down system.

Bloodhound controls access to and from all blood fridges, providing enhanced security and safety by ensuring that only approved staff are allowed to access blood.

The trust is also in talks with MSoft about implementing its Bedside Management System, which allows each barcoded unit of blood to be matched with the patient’s barcoded wristband in a matter of seconds.

Matt McAlister, managing director of MSoft eSolutions, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust to provide Salisbury District Hospital with our Bloodhound system which will further enhance patient safety.”
