Migrating the NHS to Microsoft Teams

Multiple NHS Trusts are migrating to Microsoft Teams and the reasons why are clear with a survey finding that more than two million hours of staff time have been saved since the NHS rolled out Microsoft Teams.

NHS Digital rolled Teams out to 1.3million users with NHSmail accounts between 16-20 March 2020.  The roll-out was accelerated to help NHS staff better communicate and collaborate around their responses to Covid-19, and counter the increased risks associated with the virus. In the first six months, the communications platform was used across the health service as it replaced 14.5m phone calls and hosted more than 32m virtual meetings. It is estimated Teams has saved 2.9m hours for NHS staff in the six months between April and September 2021, which NHS Digital said have been put to “better use”. In one week alone nearly six million messages were sent between NHS staff and more than 1.3million meetings were held.

The Digital Workplace team at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust looked at the efficiency of using Teams and found that on average a staff member would save one minute by using the software instead of a phone each time they called a colleague. The study also found staff members saved five minutes every time they replaced an in-person meeting with a virtual one.

"When joining a Teams meeting there’s no need to spend time checking if a meeting room is available and no need to leave your work area to get to the meeting room. In many cases the time saving would be much greater than five minutes, especially if the meeting is being held at another hospital site.”

Pushpak Nayak, associate director of ICT operations at Imperial College NHS Trust

“This has been a gamechanger that enables health and care colleagues to connect, communicate and collaborate effortlessly. Having over 1.6m colleagues on the same secure communications platform is enabling massive improvements in how the whole system can work more effectively together.”
Chris Parsons, head of collaboration services for NHS Digital
