Following a rigorous evaluation and tender process LINET UK were chosen by the trust for a patient bed replacement programme. During one weekend in April a total of 319 modern Eleganza patient beds were delivered and installed in an impressive one and a half days keeping vital services running and minimising disruption.
SDH Foundation Trust join a number of rapidly growing NHS Trusts & Boards choosing Innovative products from LINET UK, not only in the South West but also around the UK said Marcus Mattocks, Country Manager for LINET UK. The logistical planning required all existing patient beds to be removed as the new Eleganza beds were checked and delivered in their place, requiring military precision. He added Planning and preparation started many months previous with the Trust to ensure this project ran smoothly and efficiently.
The Trust and LINET worked in close partnership to deliver an ambitious bed replacement of 319 beds over one weekend. The advice and support from LINET throughout the planning and implementation phase significantly contributed to a successful and efficient delivery with minimal impact on the operational status of the hospital. said Cath Parnell, Senior Project Manager from South Devon Healthcare Foundation Trust.
