NHS Reduces Pressure on Services with Live Chat

The NHS deals with over 1 million patients every 36 hours with full-time GPs treating an average of 255 patients a week.[1] Consequently, there isn’t any doubt of the pressure that the healthcare organisations are facing to deliver excellent, compassionate and safe care for every patient, every day.


Many NHS organisations have been researching into ways to streamline their services to improve efficiency whilst delivering great patient care. One way these institutes have been achieving this is with the use of live chat software. Below is a summary of their case uses so you can decide if live chat for your website is a needed.

CWP NHS

CWP uses live chat for your website software to provide online support

Cheshire and Wirral Partnership (CWP) NHS Foundation Trust partners with commissioners, local authorities, voluntary and independent organisations, individuals who use the services and their carers, to provide mental health, substance misuse, learning disability and community physical health services plus other specialist services.

As part of their services CWP deliver a health and wellbeing service to young people helping them to take responsibility of their wellbeing and make informed decisions on their lifestyle. Live chat was introduced in January 2017 to expand the trust’s reach and approachability, as young people prefer text-based communication, and the instant contact method provides an anonymous channel for them to enquire about sexual, mental and general health matters. 

“Our account manager was very supportive and extremely helpful with the use of the software. She has been flexible on her approach to this support in offering training remotely for staff via tele-conference. Many thanks for all your support.” Programme Manager: Starting Well, CWP NHS
