Trovex have been favoured to be included in multiple projects at Teddington Memorial Hospital over the years and have indeed been included on projects for the same NHS trust on other sites.
Through passion and interest in the system, Hounslow and Richmond NHS have been a consistent investor in the Hygipod system at the Hospital and have experienced the advantages of using the system, both whilst carrying out the project and the ongoing serviceability of the Hygipod system once it has been installed.
Working with a selection of different contractors, large and small projects have been taken on and one particular project of note included 30no consulting rooms to carry out in tight shifts to ensure minimum downtime for the consulting rooms. In this scenario it was critical that the units were on site on time and even delivered ahead of time for storage on site so they could be installed on a just-in-time basis. Every unit was delivered pre-plumbed with the Markwik Thermostatic tap and the Contour 21 back outlet basin and pressure-tested to ensure total peace of mind once they were in service only after they were installed.
The Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust looked at their level of compliance with the HBN guidelines at the Teddington Memorial Hospital, and took the decision to upgrade the facilities in the walk-in centre. This involved replacing handwash stations, laying new vinyl flooring and fitting hygienic wall cladding, making the areas as easy to maintain as possible.
A SIMPLE SOLUTION
The Hospital Trust chose the Trovex Hygipod as the preferred solution for the handwash station units due to its simplicity and ease of installation. Trovex has worked with the Hospital previously, and were pleased that Trovex could supply the products that were required for the refurbishment works.
It was critical to the Hospital to be able to operate as normal during the works, and the phased refurbishment works allowed rooms to be closed one at a time on a rolling program. The Hygipod’s speed of installation enabled each consulting room to only be out of action for 24hrs, offering minimal disruption to the normal operation of the Hospital.
The Hygipod offered the best value for us, not just in terms of cost, but in terms of installation.
