If a fire, flood or other emergency damages your buildings, your top priority is to minimise disruption for your patients, which is why we offer healthcare suppliers a free Emergency Buildings plan to form part of their business continuity plan.
The Emergency Buildings Plan includes:
We will also consider what your needs would be with regards to furniture, access ramps, climate control, network facilities, fire and security.
The overall design and layout of the building are fantastic and the interior is very welcoming. We have a lot more space, particularly around beds, to facilitate patient contact and to accommodate any equipment we need. Everything fits into the ward space really well and there is better storage. The wards are airy and the design features - such as integral blinds for the windows - make infection control much easier. We also have more side rooms available which help to reduce waiting times. There has been a lot of positive feedback from staff and patients since we moved into the new building.
The response from Portakabin and the whole property team following the floods were really outstanding…The fact that the building was delivered in just 2 weeks is really quite exceptional.
