Kingsfield and Ergotron provides a bacteria-free environment at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust

CHALLENGE

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is the main provider of district general hospital services for nearly half a million people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales. Their main service locations are the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in Shrewsbury and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford. Together the hospitals have just over 700 beds and assessment & treatment trolleys. Technology products are widely used throughout these hospitals. A key priority was to find technology products that can keep the environment free from bacteria.

WHAT WE DID

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust was looking for anti-bacterial trolleys and carts for the laptops and computers on premises. The Trust was unsure about which products would help them achieve this, and so they asked for our input. We spoke with them over the phone, asking questions to come to a complete understanding of their requirement. Then, using our vendor relationships and knowledge of technology products, we recommended that the Trust used Ergotron products.

RESULT

The Ergotron products recommended to the Trust are completely anti-bacterial and enabled the Trust to refresh their equipment in a way that preserved the bacteria-free environment. Due to the success of this project, the Trust has decided to engage us in an on-going, open-ended contract for the supply of technology products.
