Testimonials

Digital Mammography Workflow
The testimonial of The Park Breast Care Centre, The Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust. The first UK site with full digital Breast Services integration.

The mammography practice of The Park Breast Care Centre has succeeded in undergoing not one, but three concurrent challenges: the change of location, the transition to digital as well as their integration to the new IT infrastructure. Trish Heath, GE Mammography Specialist shares her experience in understanding the expectations of all staff involved in order to achieve a smooth and unique solution.

"To answer The Park Centre's well-defined tender specification, we built a multi-disciplinary team with competencies ranging from digital technologies to patient workflow and service management. We realized their project needed more than just putting together high quality products, but required a complete personalized approach. I really think that GE's active listening and engagement to identify the best options have been decisive.

The Park Centre's management understood we were there to support them along the entire project, to seek and find the best suitable solution whenever any difficulties were encountered. 

It has not been easy but in the end has been fascinating and rewarding for both teams involved. It remains an exceptional achievement, not only in terms of technical performance but also from the human relations perspective."
Trish Heath, GE Mammography Specialist
