How does it work operationally?

The supply of appointments is managed by admin/operational staff using Zesty’s standalone diary.

The diary is internet-based meaning that any approved member of trust staff with a login (supplied by Zesty) and an internet connection can manage the capacity of available appointments either onsite at the testing station, in the hospital or by working from home.

Demand for appointments is managed by staff using their smartphone, laptop or desktop, they simply choose and book an available appointment in less than 60 seconds!

Staff receive an email or SMS appointment confirmation or both including the location of the testing station plus reminders before they are scheduled to attend the COVID-19 antibody test.

Results for NHS Trusts:

Zesty has worked with numerous Acute and Community NHS Trusts to deliver this solution, ranging from large London acute hospitals to community hospitals in the south east.

Richard West, Strategic Development Manager, Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust commented on the successful rollout, saying: “Zesty created a staff booking solution for us in a matter of days, as a Trust we went from thinking about COVID antibody testing to 3000 online bookings and 2600 successful staff tests in 10 days. The key benefit for us has been the standalone, non-integrated workflows requiring no IT department time, we have been able to launch the service independently, solely with Zesty’s support.”
