Belfast Trust Core LIMS Go-Live Update

8 November 2023

I would like to confirm that the Go-Live of the CoreLIMS system at the Belfast Trust has taken place.

The new WinPath Enterprise solution, provided by CliniSys, demonstrates our ability to work in partnership across our entire system to deliver solutions that benefit patients across Northern Ireland.

I am conscious that with any new solution there are always challenges that need to be addressed. I would like to assure our colleagues that we have in place a comprehensive support service that logs issues and ensures that any impact is controlled until they are resolved.

Overall, HSC colleagues and our supplier, CliniSys,  are pleased with how the roll out of WinPath Enterprise has progressed so far this week, acknowledging that the learning and improving process continues, which will significantly benefit Winpath implementation in the other trusts.

I would personally like to thank Dr Cathy Jack, Chief Executive of Belfast Trust, Jennifer Welsh, NIPIMS SRO and Karen Bailey, Chief Executive of Business Services Organisation, and colleagues across the Belfast Trust and BSO for their phenomenal effort and support in delivering this solution.

On Thursday we move toward South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust to put the CoreLims live in advance of the Encompass Go-Live, so I would like to wish all the teams good luck in the days ahead.


Yours Sincerely

Karin Jackson
