Intra Hospital Transfer documentation - adding to the existing patient safety system of transfer training and audit across all hospital sites in NWL.

Safer Transfer App (STrApp) - supports clinicians when moving critically ill or injured patients to other departments for investigations such as MRI or CT scan or sometimes across to another more specialist hospital. This easy to use App sets out top tips on managing these complex patient transfers.
