This, he said, would aid the NHS Trusts’ strategy in the face of tough Government day surgery targets and: ‘Because the units can operate anywhere in the UK at short notice they can also help to smooth out regional inequalities in healthcare.’
A fleet of 15 units are being developed by the firm, which include mobile eight-bed recovery wards that self-unload from low loaders on to hospital car parks. Arriving complete with nursing team, a unit contains a high tech operating room, anaesthesia facilities and recovery area and can receive patients within two hours of arrival at a site.
Mobile surgical units made by the firm have just completed their 10,500th surgical procedure. Details: phone +44 (0)1270 884067
