Plymouth NHS Trust – Mezzanine Floor & Shelving
July 20th, 2016
A new Medical Records library containing 2.4 km of steel shelving for Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust . Based at Bush Park, Estover, Plymouth brought together the records management of the Primary Care Trust and Plymouth Hospitals Records service into one central location.
The Library contains 2,000 bays of mobile and static shelving housing up to 1,000,000 individual Patient Records. The system was carefully designed utilising both the existing and new shelving, which was dismantled and re installed onto mobile bases. This increased the storage capacity of the existing library by a massive 62 per cent.
Working in close cooperation with NHS staff, the records were still made available for use 24/7 during the installation program which was completed in agreed phases over a 4 months period. Utilising as much of the exiting static shelving as we could and then adding new bays of shelving the logistics for this operation were extremely complex and involved. Nevertheless, the project was successfully concluded to the client’s complete satisfaction. With a team of dedicated professionals offering a personal service, the whole project was brought in on budget and two weeks earlier than scheduled over an agreed 4 months installation program.:
Designed using strong robust shelving and precision engineered mobile bases, the system will provide the Central Records Library with a modern state of the art mobile storage system for their vital patient records for many years to come.
