MIG Medical delivers fluoroscopy scanner room at Royal Stoke University Hospital
The University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust’s vision is to be a world-class centre of clinical and academic achievement.
When the trust identified a need for additional fluoroscopy capacity at Royal Stoke University Hospital, it was faced with the challenge of refurbishing office space which had no existing medical services in the area.
As a result, MIG Medical and Hopkins Coats Associates were commissioned to install the necessary equipment in order to turn the space into a brand new fluoroscopy scanner room.
This involved installing new oxygen and vacuum services, including new mains supply pipelines and NIST lockable line valves connected to the existing hospital building supply.
Once completed, we then distributed pipework at a high level in order to supply the new area valve service unit (AVSU) module, controlling newly installed terminal units housed within the bedhead trunking units.
In addition, we installed a SAX-6 alarm panel in the control room, connected to the AVSU module in order to replicate the correct gas conditions.
On completion of the project, we then tested and commissioned both the pipeline system and equipment to ensure they were in full compliance with HTM 02-01 regulations.
MIG Medical Director Anthony Mitten said: “Breaking into existing mains in order to run a new pipeline is a technically demanding task, and required close cooperation with our partners and the site authorised person during both the works and subsequent commissioning.
“Our engineers have extensive experience in installing and commissioning medical gas pipelines, and I’m pleased that they were able to deliver such a successful project for the trust.”
