Short notice ventilator relocation for NHS trust
04/04/2020 / Instrument relocation
Our team helped Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust in their fight against coronavirus by moving eight ventilators, anaesthetic machines and X-ray between hospital sites at short notice.
Our crews were on site within the hour to pack and load the machines at Wrightington Hospital and transport them to the new covid-19 intensive care ward at Wigan Infirmary.
Mark Burns, Education & Training Lead for Perioperative Care, said: "I’d like to extend my personal thanks and appreciation. Within 15 minutes of my call, members of your team came to our assistance, enabling important medical equipment to be moved to prepare an additional intensive care facility at Wigan Infirmary. Many thanks to Ian and Tom for their professionalism and help and for safely transporting our medical equipment."
