South East Coast Ambulance go live with CLIO

Wednesday 23rd January 2019

We have received some really positive feedback from South East Coast Ambulance Service regarding their use of the CLIO system as they went live at Christmas. "Feedback was positive from users and they had no major issues (IT or system wise) The use of the system on Ipads worked well and they exampled an instance where SECAmb had an issue at a local hospital, they dispatched a HALO (Hospital Ambulance Liaison Officer) to the hospital who used his Ipad to update CLIO thereby saving at least half a dozen telephone calls and everyone received the same update instantaneously. CLIO was used in SECAMB's operations centre and the Strategic Commanders were really impressed by the Whiteboard facility. This was displayed throughout the Christmas period giving them the opportunity to self-brief and get an overview of what was going on at any moment in time across the organisation. CLIO was also used in a recent Channel Tunnel exercise and again feedback was excellent." Ian Eldridge, Contingency Planning and Resilience Manager/NILO at SECAmb…

New Disclosure module in CLIO

Thursday 15th December 2016

In consultation with a national working party from the UK Police Forces, we have designed, developed and are now rolling out a disclosure module within the CLIO system for handling multiple prosecution packages from a single CLIO incident and co-ordinating the process between case officers, disclosure officers and CPS/Courts. The module not only handles the process of reviewing and managing all of the material in CLIO and the related disclosure schedules but also provides a single repository for other disclosure related information produced by the Police, CPS or defence - so that all of this information can be centralised and a comprehensive resource compiled. Several Police Forces have been trialling the disclosure module and it is now available for all - if you are a current customer and don't already have it, contact us to ask for the upgrade which will add the disclosure features to all of your existing CLIO operations, as well as any new ones.…
