Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust Choose Covenco and IBM FlashSystem

Delivering life-saving care without compromise.

When Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust sought a solution to their legacy storage performance and reliability, they called upon IBM and Covenco for an answer. The Trust needed a solution to improve patient outcomes across its four hospital sites and neuro-rehabilitation unit.

Learn how Covenco worked with IBM to deliver IBM FlashSystems Storage to significantly increase performance and reliability for the Trust’s critical clinical systems.


Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust maximises availability while embracing new technology. In a healthcare setting, every second counts. Clinicians depend on reliable access to essential healthcare systems when providing care. Any interruptions or delays could be a matter of life or death. For the IT teams behind the scenes, that makes avoiding unplanned downtime is one of their highest priorities.

The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is a regional health organisation comprised of four hospital sites and a neuro-rehabilitation unit in England. The organisation employs around 20,000 staff providing a range of community and hospital services to over one million people across Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, and Salford, as well as providing more specialist care to patients across Greater Manchester and beyond.

Since making the move to IBM FlashSystem storage, the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust has seen a significant increase in performance and reliability for critical clinical systems. By reducing user waiting times, IBM technology contributes to higher productivity.
