Leicestershire company We Love Surveys has been awarded an Innovate UK grant to develop cutting-edge drugs audit software for the healthcare industry.
The project has also helped create new jobs in the East Midlands, with We Love Surveys taking on new employees to develop the software and run the project.
We Love Surveys, a Loughborough-based feedback solution provider, is using its 15 years of experience working with the NHS to launch Drugs Audit, a platform to digitise clinical drugs audits.
The platform will transform the process of auditing controlled drugs in hospitals and will contribute to the NHS paperless target by removing the need for paper audits.
The platform also offers solutions to new challenges that have arisen during the coronavirus pandemic. The digitisation of audits removes the need to pass physical paper, reducing contact between NHS staff, as well as saving precious time.
“I am so proud of the concept we have developed in partnership with a selection of the best NHS Trusts and pharmacists in the country,” said We Love Surveys CEO Helen Dargie.
“The grant from Innovate UK means that we can make significant steps forward in turning our prototype into reality and really start to solve everyday challenges that our NHS pharmacy colleagues are facing.
“The growth of our team in the East Midlands is a real bonus. We have secured some outstanding colleagues that will turn our vision into the future of our company. I continue to believe that the Midlands is the best place to do business in the country.”
