A HEALTHCARE equipment provider based in Ellesmere Port is providing a hospital with a temporary renal dialysis unit.

EMS-Healthcare is helping to deliver essential care to hundreds of patients at King’s College and Dulwich Community Hospital.

The firm has designed and fitted out its Liberty Quad vehicle, linking four 13.6-metre medical trailers together to create a high-quality seven-bed ward with one private isolation room for patients to be treated.

EMS also managed the installation, including a hook-up to the hospital mains and to a containerised reverse osmosis filtration system.

The hi-tech clinical environment will enable lifesaving renal dialysis treatment for patients at one of London’s largest and busiest hospitals.

During the next six months it will be operational six days a week, delivering three sessions per day to groups of eight patients at a time.

Keith Austin, partner in EMS-Healthcare, said: “This is a second deployment of a renal care unit for EMS.

“Liberty Quad provides the ultimate flexible solution to estate management, offering a ready-made clinical environment that we can put in place in a relatively short period of time.

“This makes it attractive to hospitals that need to free up valuable hospital space quickly and efficiently with a temporary solution that they can guarantee will meet NHS standards.”
