Vanguard Healthcare Solutions, the UK’s leading provider of flexible clinical infrastructure, is hosting an information event for healthcare professionals which will offer a tour of one of its new mobile operating theatres.
Vanguard creates and rapidly delivers mobile and modular healthcare spaces which help hospitals and health systems to provide increased capacity and essential surgical and diagnostic procedures in high quality clinical environments.
The organisation recently worked alongside St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to create a bespoke Surgical Hub – a four-theatre complex at its Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton – using modular construction in a project completed in less than four months.
During The Vanguard Operating Theatre Experience healthcare professionals, including surgeons and anaesthetists alongside hospital estates and planning colleagues, managers and architects with gather to tour a Vanguard mobile operating theatre, positioned beside the Surgical Hub.
Vanguard’s highly experienced clinical, operational and logistics team members will conduct tours of the mobile theatre and answer visitors’ questions. Visitors will also learn more about how Vanguard builds modular healthcare spaces, such as the surgical hub, and mixed modality facilities which combine the benefits of mobile and modular elements. In their recent report, ‘The Case For Surgical Hubs’, The Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCSE) recognised the important role surgical hubs can have in addressing waiting list backlogs.
Vanguard mobile operating theatres have been used by healthcare systems globally to deliver tens of thousands of essential procedures including orthopaedic, ophthalmic and general surgeries, open heart surgery and gynaecology. The theatres have been used worldwide to increase clinical capacity in both planned and emergency situations and can help with reducing procedure waiting times.
Complementing its mobile and modular clinical environments, such as operating theatres, endoscopy suites, day surgery, clinics and ward space which help healthcare providers, including the NHS, increase patient capacity and clinical space, Gloucester-based Vanguard also provide highly trained support staff.
At Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton, the Vanguard Operating Theatre Experience will welcome visitors on Tuesday February 28th and Wednesday March 1st between 9am-5pm. To book a place, please visit: https://www.vanguardhealthcare.co.uk/news-and-events/the-vanguard-operating-theatre-experience/
