NHS Education for Scotland is planning to expand its use of CourseBooker software from Consensus to improve the administration of the training it supplies to the country's 13 NHS Trusts. Before buying CourseBooker, the organisation used a Microsoft Access-based program written years ago in-house. "It was very old and very laborious,' said Carol Mann, finance and information officer at NES. "It's worked really well, we've written our own user manual and, as we've started using the system, we have been able to amend things, so it's lent itself to our processes," said Mann.
