GS1 UK is a community of more than 50,000 members and one of 115 independent, not-for-profit, GS1 organisations operating across 150 countries worldwide.
We work with healthcare providers and suppliers to improve patient safety, reduce unwarranted clinical variation, and drive operational efficiencies through the adoption of unique data standards.
GS1 standards provide the foundation for integrated patient care across clinical settings, through the globally unique identification of every person, every product, and every place, which enables traceability across the patient pathway and the supply chain.
GS1 standards are both system and device agnostic, which allows for the exchange of vital information between different care providers and systems, irrespective of the care setting. This certainty results in improved patient safety, promotes significant efficiencies, and reduces the risk of errors.
