Our next generation General Anaesthetic Surgical Suite

A Mobile-Modular General Anaesthetic Surgical Suite

 We are excited to share that our new unit is nearly ready. Working once more alongside our partners at Neat Vehicles, we have developed a unit that is designed to give even greater flexibility to the types of procedures it can be used for whilst maintaining its plug and play functionality.

Our new General Anaesthetic unit is highly manoeuvrable and easy to deploy like our local anaesthetic offering, but with the added benefit of a recovery room, a larger laser-safe operating theatre space incorporating a UCV canopy, medical gases and ramped access.

The modular aspect means we are able to achieve a greater footprint and provide a natural patient flow throughout, from entrance to recovery and discharge.

The substantial 45m2 surgical space contains an overhead UCV canopy, extensive storage units, preparation area, and leads directly onto both an anaesthetic roomrecovery room and a dirty utility room.

The unit is designed to be set up with great ease. Our plug and play philosophy means the unit can be set up on site within a day and requires just some basic utility provisions. A separate pod is delivered alongside to make provision for medical gases.

If you wish to find out more about this exciting development please get in touch.
