By doing so it not only saves precious desk space but also makes for a more intuitive workspace as the operator does not have to swap between keyboards.


Access-IS custom keyboards have been the de-facto standard in many industries for the past three decades. Their high quality design and manufacture means that they withstand years of non-stop front line use, in fact Sheffield Teaching Hospitals first bought Access-IS keyboards in 2003 so they know first-hand how reliable they are.


Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest NHS foundation trusts providing a full range of hospital and community services for people in Sheffield, as well as specialist care for patients from further afield. The Trust manages five of Yorkshire’s best known teaching hospitals including: Northern General Hospital, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, Weston Park Cancer Hospital and Jessop Wing Maternity Hospital.
