PACS exit knowledge portal

As more and more trusts and suppliers move through the process of transition from central to locally contracted PACS and RIS systems, we're building a portfolio of case studies and other supporting documents to support trusts further down the line.

This information will help you access and share learning, insight and experience on PACS and RIS exit and transition.
