Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital was built as a replacement for the incumbent Norfolk and Norwich and West Norwich Hospitals as part of a £229 million PFI hospital scheme designed to provide a 953 bed, state of the art NHS academic teaching hospital.
The Wandsworth Group has recently completed work installing our state of the art IP nurse call system technology and equipment for a multi-million pound Arizona project for The Walton Centre NHS Trust in Liverpool.
The Walton Centre is the only specialist neurosciences NHS Trust in the UK and offers world class diagnosis and treatment for brain, spine and peripheral nerve and muscle injuries and illnesses.
The nature of care provided by the Trust made it vital for us to deliver systems that were effective, both in terms of the quality of care provided but also reliability and cost. We at Wandsworth were delighted to be tasked with such a vital responsibility.
IPiN Provides Flexibility Required from Nurse Call Systems
Healthcare technology specialist, Wandsworth Group, has installed its IPiN Ethernet-based nurse call system into the Cardiac Ward, Accident & Emergency Unit and Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) of South Tyneside Hospital as part of a rolling upgrade programme.
The Wandsworth team has already completed the IPiN installation in the A&E, Integrated Emergency Care, SCBU and Wards 6 & 7 as part of the general refurbishment programme. IPiN units were installed for each of the 30 beds in Ward 6 which combines cardiac care & integrated emergency provision. The SCBU installation involved 6 units installed on Medical Service Columns. Wandsworth & the Trusts Estates Dept. will be moving onto the next phase of the refurbishment gradually providing the flexibility and future proofing advantages offered by IPiN across the hospital.
This month has seen an influx of patients to the brand new, state of the art, £430 million Brunel building at Bristol Southmead Hospital.
For us at Wandsworth however, the site is the result of three years of collaboration and work with Carillion building group on behalf of North Bristol NHS Trust.
