Glenfield General Hospital

Maintaining endoscope reprocessing capacity

The Quad Mobile Decontamination Unit has been introduced at Glenfield General Hospital in Leicester to support theatre and endoscopy reprocessing services whilst a permanent facility is commissioned and built. The innovative solution is set to immediately boost reprocessing capacity, by an additional 240 scopes per day - providing a reliable stepping stone to keep services running smoothly without disruption.

Claire Jones-Manning, Decontamination Lead at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said; "We brought one of the first Quest+ units onto the Trust estate last year and it was fantastic for us, but we soon found we needed more capacity. That’s when we gave EMS Healthcare a call about getting a larger unit, they didn’t have one on their fleet but redesigned one of their existing units to accommodate our requirements."

"Quad arrived at Glenfield Hospital a few months later. It’s been brilliant to work with the team and have input from the start of the project. EMS Healthcare have been a pleasure to work with and they’ve really paid attention to all the little details. Quad’s also helping out with our JAG accreditation so we’re really happy.”
