Hillingdon Hospital

The Brief:

Hillingdon Hospitals new Paediatric A & E is designed to cope with an increase in patient numbers. The development has ensured full separation between adult and paediatric A & E.

A design and arts programme was initiated with the aim of creating a welcoming environment appropriate for children of all ages.

The hospitals Estates team approached Ocura to source furniture for the new department with the key objectives of securing furniture that matched the ward colour scheme, whilst meeting the Trust’s stringent infection control protocol and representing good value for money.

The Approach:

Due to Ocura’s colour matching scheme, we could recommend a range of products which coordinated with the planned colour scheme for the new unit.

Ocura agreed to a request for an on-site demonstration of our Readybed Sleeper Chair at a Project Team meeting.  Due to time constraints, this was scheduled for the following day. Key stakeholders were suitably impressed by the Readybed and commented on its robust and easy to clean nature, as well as the simple pull out mechanism that transforms the chair to a bed.

To compliment the Readybed, colour matched Grenada bedside cabinets with digital keypad locks and  Gola patient & visitor chairs were chosen to complete the furnishings for the department.

The Outcome:

Ocura were pleased to supply the hospital with 8 x Readybeds, 22 x Gola Chairs and 4 x Grenada Bedside Cabinets with Digital Keypad Locks

Delivery and installation was made using Ocura’s white glove service, which includes placement of the products on the ward, and removal of all packaging.
