Case Studies


heartlandsDuring spring 2009 Heartlands Hospital added to its existing CT suite by installing one of the new generation of CT scanners now emerging into the market.

This was only the second machine to be installed in the UK of this type, (operating at much greater speed with lower radiation dosage to the patient) effectively doubling the existing capacity.

Raybloc an existing supplier, for a number or years to Toshiba, were selected to carry out the building and x-ray installation works which included fitted storage equipment compliant with HTM 63.

Toshiba were looking for a unique approach for the look of the fitted furniture, offering Heartlands Hospital, a CT suite as individual as its Scanner. Shropshire Pine were appointed to carry this requirement because of their experience and quality of furniture they have produced for the healthcare market.

Shropshire Pine who have a well established manufacturing base, were approached by Raybloc to undertake this individual exercise.

The overall specification was to be underpinned by the structure of the formal NHS Specification of HTM 63, but to add a more modern theme to compliment the remaining design criteria of the suite. This included radiused internal walls, soft tone decoration and computer controlled LED mood lighting, all adding to the purpose of greater patient comfort.

This was achieved by incorporating radiused vertical elements to both the base, wall units and sloping tops, this in turn added a new dimension to the already well proven design of the Postformed worksurfaces.

The outcome was a superior looking product that fitted the design brief completely.
