Bespoke TCP’S installed at Whittington Hospital in rapid time

A tight schedule for installing new touchscreen control panels (TCP), PACS viewers and LED surgical lighting in four operating theatres at Whittington Hospital in London proved to be no problem for Bender UK, who successfully met the tight project deadlines.

The challenging 9-day programme for installation and commissioning included the creation of a bespoke mounting and access arrangements for the control panels.  The project was managed through FES FM Ltd which provides facilities management to Whittington Hospital, and was responsible for upgrading elements of the infrastructure to deliver energy savings and improved performance.

Bender UK upgraded the lighting and control facilities in operating theatres 1 and 2 first, followed by the completion of all 4 theatres by the summer of 2016. STS Electrical Ltd worked with Bender UK to complete the installation of the panels and additional cabling.  The team scheduled their work around the requirements of the surgical facilities which meant working outside normal working hours to achieve the tight deadlines.

The four theatres are equipped with Steris LED lighting controlled by Bender’s hygienic TCP’s.  The upgrade also included replacing X-ray viewers with 42 inch PACS screens linked to the hospital’s IT network.

Bender created a bespoke installation of the TCP’s to integrate with existing stainless steel surfaces within the operating theatres.  The project used existing back boxes to provide rear service access, and minimise the disruption caused by the installation.  It means future service requirements can be met without compromising hygiene in the theatres.

Nigel Calverley, Contract Manager at FES FM Ltd in London commented: “The installation of the new equipment in the theatres was achieved within the required deadline and the installation team demonstrated outstanding commitment to work around the day-to-day running of the hospital while carrying out their own tasks.”

David Williamson, National Medical Sales Manager for Bender UK’s added: “Our company has extensive experience of working alongside facilities managers and clinical staff to ensure upgrades and refurbishment projects are completed with minimum interruption of their normal working arrangements.  The team also developed a bespoke solution for Whittington Hospital to integrate the panels within the operating theatre, which again reduced the disruption for clinical services.”

All Bender TCP’s are designed and manufactured in house to bespoke customer requirements:
