Possible unneccessary printing within Nobles Hospital

Each division could look into the volume of documents that they print out, and evaluate whether hard copies of those documents are entirely neccessary.

I.E blood results, a vast amount of blood results slips are printed daily. With a hospital working so hard on a move to paperlight, are these hard copies neccessary when all notes and documents are being scanned in to become digital?

Why the contribution is important

Vast amounts of these blood slips as well as other documents are printed on a daily basis from materials/stationary/paper/ink that are no doubt expensive to source.

If documents such as blood slips were digitally stored rather than printed as the patient notes are going to be, this would be a reduction in the paper and ink needed that would ordinarily have been used to print them.

    My results are on a computer, I can see my GP reports on the web. So there is no reason to have anything printed unless I want it myself. Who is printing this stuff then, because it cannot be being used by anyone ?

    IOM government should stop printing anything unless it is absolutely necessary
