McKesson to open new service center in Wales, UK

03 Jul 08

McKesson has announced that it will open a new shared service center in Bangor, Wales, UK to support integrated payroll and human resources for the UK National Health Service, the largest healthcare operation.

A consortium led by McKesson, which includes Oracle and IBM, will supply National Health Service (NHS) with the system, called electronic staff record (ESR), a $480 million contract that will create 300 jobs over the next three years.

According to the company, the ESR system will create cost efficiencies and service improvement and enable the NHS to have a clear view of its workforce, identify any skills shortages or gaps and provide payroll information, appraisal and training provision.
