NHS North West London
- Aggregation of NHS regional training courses on one online site
- Much simplified promotion of courses for training providers
- Ease of access to and booking of courses for learners
- Increased course enrolment numbers
- Reduction in unallocated course spaces
- Improved education of healthcare professionals
The North West London Health Innovation and Education Cluster (NWL HIEC) is one of three London clusters selected by the Department of Health to promote innovation and education, to enable high quality patient care and services in the NHS. The NWL HIEC is a collaboration of NWL health organisations, educational institutes, charitable bodies and industry partners.
A large number of healthcare professionals in the Cluster were unaware of the existence of many of the courses developed, organised and run by participating organisations. Inevitably, these courses were consistently under-subscribed, resulting in a vast number of missed training opportunities and an excessive cost per attendee.
We created a new web portal, YODEL (Your Opportunity for Development Education & Learning) at www.yodel.nhs.uk, underpinned by our Bespoke Database Design.
YODEL provides a single online resource for providers to advertise and prospective participants to view all available training courses within the NHS Cluster. Providers can now target their courses to relevant health professionals, who can also find courses through keyword search. This makes life so much easier for both parties.
Bookings are taken through a secure online system and paid directly or by purchase order number including, as needed, online approval by a line manager. Upon completing a course, learners can provide feedback and a rating, accessible by the training provider.
In the short time since the web portal went live, NWL HIEC has already noticed a spike in course enrolments, leading to a reduction in the cost per attendee. Improving course attendance increases the training benefits, enhancing patient care across the NWL region.
When the second phase of the project launches in the near future, our client anticipates course enrolment numbers to increase exponentially.
Our Client Says
“From first sight of your tender submission, it was clear that you had captured our vision to develop our new web portal. You provided a robust, well thought specification with unique answers to each section and the synergy felt right. Coupled with your quotation being within our tolerances, Logic was the clear winner of the contract which you delivered on price and on time.
Our high expectations of your company were exceeded by the excellent collaboration of your team in treating us as a valued customer. Your team is personable, professional and prompt with responses. When testing revealed a few small software glitches they were rectified swiftly.
We had very tight, exacting deadlines which you met without complaint, including some extra work that we had failed to fully detail in the original specification. Despite it being early days since the project went live, we can see the first signs of success which we hope will grow exponentially in phase two of the project.
We have enjoyed our partnership with Logic Software as a responsive, prompt and first-class company and would not hesitate in recommending you.”

Advantages of Bespoke Databases: Tailoring Data Solutions to Your Business
In today’s data-driven world, businesses of all sizes and industries rely heavily on efficient database systems to manage their information effectively. While off-the-shelf software may serve some purposes, many are turning to bespoke database solutions to meet their specific business requirements. Explore the advantages of bespoke databases and how they align perfectly with the needs of someone seeking a tailored data solution.
Bespoke Database Development: A Perfect Fit
For businesses seeking highly customized data solutions that precisely match their operations and objectives, bespoke database development is the way forward. Unlike generic, one-size-fits-all options, bespoke databases are meticulously designed to cater to your unique needs.
The primary advantage of bespoke databases lies in their tailor-made nature. They are not constrained by the limitations of shelf software and can be developed to accommodate specific business processes and workflows. This tailored approach allows for seamless integration with your existing systems, enhancing overall efficiency.
Meeting Specific Business Requirements
One of the key reasons businesses opt for bespoke databases is their ability to meet specific business requirements. Whether you require intricate levels of access control, user-friendly interfaces, or integration with other software applications, a custom database can be designed to cater to your exact needs.
Efficiency and Data Management
Bespoke databases are built with your efficiency in mind. They streamline your data management processes, ensuring that you have easy access to the information you need when you need it. If you’re focused on operational efficiency, bespoke databases offer a valuable solution.
Cloud Databases for Accessibility
In an increasingly digital world, accessibility is paramount. Bespoke database solutions can also be developed for cloud deployment. This means that you can access your data securely from anywhere, which is particularly beneficial for businesses with remote teams or multiple locations.
Development Team Collaboration
Collaborating with a dedicated development team is a hallmark of bespoke database development. These experts work closely with you to understand your unique needs and ensure that the database system aligns perfectly with your business objectives.
Database Software: Microsoft SQL Server
When it comes to bespoke databases, software options like Microsoft SQL Server are often used as the foundation. These robust database systems provide a solid framework for creating customised solutions that excel in terms of performance and security.
Bespoke databases offer a world of advantages for businesses looking to elevate their data management capabilities. Just as LogicSoftware empowers businesses with tailor-made software solutions, bespoke databases empower you to take control of your data and streamline your operations, key to unlocking a more streamlined, data-driven future.
