Patient identification


This course is designed to support the Department of Health requirement for all Trusts to implement ISB 1077 compliant patient wristbands. Specifically, it will provide guidance on the standards and governance related to the creation and management of Global Service Relation Numbers (GSRN).

By successfully undertaking the certificate, it will enable individuals to demonstrate their GS1 Standards expertise, providing them with the skills to roll out implementation programmes within their own Trusts. Or, in the case of the Scan4Safety sites or GS1 UK Partners, help them advise Trusts with confidence.

Who should attend?
  • Champions for GS1 and PEPPOL adoption
  • Scan4Safety programme leads and supporting teams
  • Clinical staff
  • Solution providers
  • GS1 UK Solution Partners
