MTS were proud to be able to support the London Nightingale in their quest to support the COVID-19 crisis. We arrived on day 3 and immediately managed the process to commission the equipment arriving from suppliers; hospitals and many other sources from around the UK. MTS put in the asset tagging system and brought in Avensys for specialist Ventilation expertise; together with managing and working alongside our industry colleagues from Althea who had been brought in by Royal Free NHS Trust (The commissioning Hospital).

MTS were managing up to 33 engineers whilst also liaising with the Army, Hospital Clinicians; Procurement; Project Teams and the Consumables personnel. We introduced a “Field Hospital” Governance Document within 3 days of being on site and then part-way worked in collaboration with Barts Health who were the “operational” Trust for the site. MTS was on site overall for 9 weeks and worked with the onsite Barts Health Clinical Engineering Team who were by then operationally active on the “red” side.

Every patient that was treated was considered a step in the right direction in the fight against this pandemic.

MTS went on to support the start up at Cardiff; Full Equipment Commissioning at Manchester and is now currently supporting BAM Construction at the Nightingale Exeter.

MTS were proud to be able to support Sir Robert McAlpine /IHP in the early stages of the construction of the Nightingale Hospital North West. Many of us are more familiar with visiting the Manchester Central Conference centre to attend IHEEM but this year MCC was transformed within 4 weeks into a Level 3 field hospital. Our team on site were managed by Caroline Finlay and comprised MTS and Avensys engineers. On site for the whole period as site representative of MTS was Kim Lovick. Kim worked for MTS for more than ten years before pursuing more international work. It was great to have him on the MTS team again.

Over 3000 items of equipment were asset tagged and commissioned and while this facility was not designed to accommodate ICU patients, it still played a major role in contingency planning and the support to the North West region in the COVID-19 crisis. Following completion of the construction and handover to Manchester University Foundation Trust, the host Trust, the whole provided valuable equipment advice and support to the SBS procurement manager and ensured that all equipment was appropriately commissioned, and that training systems were in place.
