MTS Commissions the Equipment at London Nightingale

MTS Commissions the Equipment at London Nightingale

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 Commissions the Equipment at Nightingale North West

MTS Commissions the Equipment at Nightingale North West

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.

MTS launches appeal for disused ventilation equipment in wake of Coronavirus outbreak

MTS Health launches appeal for disused ventilation equipment in wake of Coronavirus outbreak

We want to create countrywide equipment library to help hospitals cope with rising number of patients needing respiratory support

MTS Health is joining the fight against coronavirus, with bosses calling on health trusts to send them spare or redundant ventilation and gas therapy equipment.

We are offering our resources to support the creation of a countrywide equipment library of redundant and spare ventilators.

And it will be working with equipment manufacturers and other experts to bring this equipment back into operational use.

A spokesman said: “The Government has announced additional measures to seek to reduce the spread of Covid-19 across the country.

It is essential these measures succeed, but the NHS must prepare for, and respond to, the anticipated large numbers of patients who will need respiratory support, particularly mechanical ventilation and, to a lesser extent, non-invasive ventilation.

All trusts have been told to enhance their critical care capabilities, and will be fully reimbursed.

The goal is to have as many beds, critical care bays, theatre and recovery areas able to administer life-supporting respiratory care as possible.

“With this in mind, we are asking anyone who has spare or redundant ventilators or associated gas therapy equipment that is in storage and for whatever reason cannot be used, to make us aware.

“If we can pool ventilators, and understand where they are located, we can all help to save lives.

“Let’s work together to understand where we have some flex in the system, and to ensure these previously-retired devices can be utilised.
