NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group goes Digital with DMCL and Winscribe

UK - August 13, 2015


NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group (HMR CCG) is led by general practitioners (GPs) and other health professionals who are responsible for deciding how the local healthcare budget is spent to make sure quality services are provided.


Last year HMR CCG decided to upgrade the dictation capture method in some of their surgeries, as sites were experiencing the limitations of analogue systems – and tendered to attract vendors and suppliers.

After a rigorous selection process, Dictating Machine Co Ltd (DMCL) was selected as the preferred supplier. DMCL presented Winscribe - Dictation as the perfect solution for the group’s requirements and future plans at 26 General Practice surgeries. 

Ben Laskey, Programme Manager at HMR CCG adds

“The NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale decided to accept DMCL’s bid for Winscribe Dictation as they met all the requirements of the PCT and GP Practices. Winscribe’s proven track record in delivering dictation solutions to GP surgeries and their ability to support key functionality such as encryption and workflow management made the selection easy.”

Donna Haughton, Project Manager at HMR CCG comments 

”DCML provided us with very good service during both the installation and the implementation and also during the training and after sales support. GPs, secretaries and IT managers are very enthusiastic about the new system. Both Winscribe and DMCL have supplied us with a first class product and with first class support.” 

Brian Hart Managing Director at DMCL says

 “supporting our clients with modernising workflow systems is something we take pleasure in doing, especially when helps to gain efficiencies and I am happy Ben and Donna are seeing them. We have worked closely with Winscribe for many years, so it’s great to see our relationship grow and clients benefit from joint projects.”

Joe DiCarlo, Winscribe Channel Relationship Manager comments

“Brian and the DMCL team have great relationship with Winscribe spanning many years. It is wonderful hearing the benefits the HMR CCG staff are realising from our partnership but ultimately it’s the patients and their families that are reaping the real benefits.”
