Dr Toolbox is a secure online information resource set up by trainee doctors to help to better orientate themselves with their hospital and department. Including bleep numbers, referral methods & guides.
Why does it matter?
Easily accessible information at local level ensures that staff can be as efficient and effective as possible in carrying out their role. This in turn has positive impacts on patient safety as well as education and training.
What can it do?
Dr Toolbox is estimated to save 40 minutes per doctor per day. At a typical NHS Trust with 60 doctors in training, this could save £200,000 per hospital every year.
