WARP-IT - Look How Far We Have Come!

WARP-IT – Look How Far We Have Come!

Big savings have already been achieved thanks to a new system known as Warp It, which was introduced in NHS Forth Valley in September 2016. Warp It makes it easier for staff in NHS Forth Valley to loan or give surplus items to other staff.

This is all about saving you time and money and being smarter with our resources.

Gerald Ferrie, Transport & Waste Manager, who leads on Warp It, said: We had a flurry of activity at the outset with a number of items and equipment being found a new home rather than being disposed of. Staff looking for items are beginning to put requests on the system so we now want more staff to register and use it routinely.”

So far on the system we have saved:

  • £3,552
  • 361 kg waste
  • 1,453 Kg CO2

So, if you have an item that is taking up space that you do not need, put it on Warp It or if you are looking for an item check Warp It before you buy new!

What items can be reused through Warp It?

Any surplus furniture, electrical equipment, fixtures and fittings, office consumables (such as stationery and ink jet cartridges) and other non-clinical items.

Medical equipment and IT equipment should NOT be included, but should be referred to the Medical Physics or ICT departments, as appropriate.
