Mid Cheshire was looking for solutions that help improve patient care by enabling remote access to patient information in a cost-effective way. Awingu certified partner ‘New Signature’ implemented an online workplace solution running Awingu on Microsoft’s Azure cloud. Now, employees have the capability to easily work from anywhere, while the IT operating costs have been reduced compared to the previous way of working.

Mid Cheshire hospitals NHS foundation trust manages multiple health care institutions in the UK (Leighton Hospital in Crewe, Victoria Infirmary in Northwich, and Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford). It is a midsized organization that employees over 4000 members of staff.


  • Secure remote access from any device to the hospitals core application (Emis) as well as a full desktop
  • Lower operating costs compared to the old way-of-working
