Hospital bosses hope a move to digital patient correspondence will help cut the number of missed appointments (DNA), which cost the NHS around £1bn a year.

The IT issue that we experienced yesterday (23 November) has now been resolved and we are able to process and report on blood samples as normal.
An ongoing IT issue is significantly impacting our ability to process and report on blood samples, slowing down our clinical decision making.

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) is committed to recognising and celebrating staff members for their achievements and commitment to the Trust and NHS.
