Helping the NHS to save thousands of lives and millions of pounds.
GS1 UK is a community of over 39,000 members and one of 114 independent, not-for-profit GS1 organisations operating across 150 countries worldwide. We work with healthcare providers and suppliers to improve patient safety, enhance clinical effectiveness and drive operational efficiencies.
GS1 standards provide the foundation for integrated patient care in the NHS by enabling the globally unique identification of every person, product and place.
GS1 standards are system agnostic, allowing the exchange of this information between different care providers and systems, no matter where or when a patient receives care. This certainty results in improved patient outcomes, significant efficiencies and reduced errors in the NHS.
