NHS Streamlining Week - Day 3 Electronic Staff Record 

Streamlining week

NHS Employers hosted a week dedicated to streamlining in the NHS during 1–5 April 2019. On day three, we focused on the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) system with the aim of educating, sharing good practice and inspiring other organisations to use ESR functionality to increase efficiency and improve staff experience.


ESR streamlining podcast


The NHS ESR team and the North West streamlining programme have been working collaboratively together. In this podcast you will be able to learn more about how this partnership has successfully achieved the regions streamlining aims and objectives, and how it has been instrumental in further development of ESR functionality that not only supports streamlining but also benefits all ESR users.  Listen to the podcast.

ESR webinar - adopt and configure your ESR to enable efficient streamlining

‘I understand the principles of streamlining, but I don’t know how I can make it happen’ 
- this is a frequent statement we hear, organisations want to adopt the principles but just don’t know where to start and how they can use ESR to support them.  

To help understand the streamlining principles in relation to the ESR solution, ESR held a webinar to explain how it supports the national streamlining programme and its principles, demonstrating best practice 'new starter journey’ methodology and highlighting key ESR functionality.  Guest presenters from the North Central London STP and Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust shared how they have adopted ESR methodology both as a collaborative and/or single trust approach to fully maximise their ESR solution with streamlining in mind, which is enabling them to realise the true benefits to their organisation, workforce and their STP region. 


Documentation relating to this webinar and other ESR streamlining resources are available on the Discover your ESR Website.
