Newham Rainbow Children's Centre

The Brief

The opening of Bart’s Health NHS Trusts’ flagship £6.8m Rainbow Children’s Centre at Newham University Hospital is a shining example of cutting-edge design within a healthcare environment. 

Ocura was tasked with ensuring seamless continuity between the wards and corridors by providing furniture which not only met demanding clinical standards but also matched the bespoke colours of the stunning feature wall. 

The brief asked for multiple products including Readybed Sleeper Chairs, Overbed Tables, Bedside Cabinets and Wardrobes to be supplied in a range of ten colours as well as a specific wood effect finish.

The Approach

As a trusted supplier to the Trust, Ocura was invited to quote for the project.

Our extensive colour range across multiple items of ward furniture gave us a clear advantage.  

We worked with the Trust to demonstrate the products, arrange trials and help them choose the right products for their needs. 

We also provided tailor-made visuals of what these items would look like so the hospital could visualise these products in their ward.

The Outcome

Newham described our service as “fantastic”. 

In total, we supplied 33 Readybed Sleeper Chairs, 33 Easy Clean Overbed Tables, 12 Grenada Bedside Cabinets and a further 12 with wardrobes as well as two Sepsis trolleys. 

The Projects Team commented that the Ocura products were competitively priced, whilst also providing a much more visually attractive result.
