Manchester North General Hospital have chosen Sheridan Lifts to carry out the recent lift installation for the Hospital’s brand new Intermediate Care Unit situated in Crumpsall.
The Intermediate Care Unit is designed as a small community to rehabilitate patients well enough to be discharged from the hospital and nurture their integration back into the community.
We assisted the hospital by installing a two-stop bed lift compliant with the latest editions of the government’s HBN and HTM regulations (healthcare standard) to allow safe and comfortable transport for patients with enough space for beds and associated ancillary equipment to access both levels of the ICU.
The ICU is a part of the Community Assessment Support Service (CASS) which is a network for integrated health and social care meaning that patients can gain referral and access to the help they need. One of the main benefits of the ICU for the NHS is that it reduces the issue of bed blocking allowing treatment for new patients while still caring for those who need it.
