Out of hospital care
Following the release of the NHS England ‘Five Year Forward View’, out of hospital and community-based care has been repeatedly highlighted as the main avenues our NHS should be taking to help improve the system. Mobile medical units have been proven to significantly help healthcare providers to continually achieve this goal.
We've been providing out of hospital and community care solutions to healthcare providers for over 10 years. By commissioning one of our flexible mobile medical units clinicians can ensure that uncompromised patient care is delivered closer to home.

The unit provides assessment and treatment services to patients in locations closer to home. 90% of patients find the mobile unit more convenient than attending the hospital.
