Staff felt coming to the office to collect stationery was wasteful and detracted from time with Service Users.
It was agreed that the provision of printers be reviewed and a pilot of services would be undertaken. The review highlighted that some homes could be grouped together to share printers and printing costs. Also there would need to be some control on the amount of and the ability to control printers from head office.
So we will soon be starting to install laser printers in four of our services. Those services will be: Darrel Drive, Beaconsfield Road, Maiden Lane and Old Racecourse Road.
We will be working together with Data Systems to provide the printers at these four houses. We will roll this out to more services if it proves successful.
Our deal with Data Systems includes full maintenance and toner cartridges. So if a printer breaks down or runs low on Toner, Data Tech will supply Toner or an engineer to fix it.
To make things even easier we have included a new section on the staff resources area of the web site so you can download and print forms off yourself.
