Mobile phone recycling may tempt NHS
13 September 2010 — 2:06 PM
The National Health Service (NHS) may be one industry in which mobile phone recycling has become a significantly more attractive proposition.
This is because it would create some funds to put towards a contract with Orange, the company that is set to provide more of its communications equipment.
Up to £300 million of savings are expected in the UK healthcare sector thanks to the firm's modular service that will allow access to appointments, improve service and increase attendance rates through mobile technology.
Orange Healthcare Gateway is the second such project and focuses on giving doctors and nurses the mobile products required to enhance the success of their work.
"It enables healthcare providers to make better use of time and resources, at a time when efficiency gains are front of mind," explains Michael Lawrence, head of corporate propositions at Orange UK.
The company recently announced it is also improving the mobile experience of its regular customers by allowing them access to T-Mobile's network.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "More organisations are realising the potential that mobile phone recycling has. If you want to recycle your phone, you could get up to £200 for your old handset with Envirofone."
