EMS unveils its 1st mobile dialysis unit at open day

Renal Dialysis Medical Trailer Nhs Wales

The EMS team opened the doors to its first-ever mobile medical unit for renal dialysis this week and gave healthcare and construction professionals and patients a sneak preview before it launches in early April.

The unique mobile healthcare solution based at Victoria Memorial Hospital will offer community-based dialysis to patients in Welshpool.

It was created by linking four 13.6m medical trailers together to reveal a high-quality six-bed ward and two private isolation rooms for patients to be treated.

At the showcase event, industry professionals and dialysis patients and their families were given a short presentation and tour of the high-tech mobile medical unit.

EMS Managing Director Keith Austin said:
“We are immensely proud to show off this state-of-the art mobile medical unit to patients and clients - the feedback we received at the open day was excellent. Liberty Quad is a fantastic example of the quality environments we can create using mobile medical units.”

Patient comments included:
“This renal unit is incredible, it has the look and feel of normal ward, now it’s here it will save so much travelling time in the future.”
