The Highland Hospice at Inverness is the only hospice serving adults with incurable life limiting disease in the Highlands of Scotland and 13th December 2016 welcomed HRH The Earl of Inverness to formally open the new Highland Hospice.
The new Hospice provides a brand new Inpatient Unit as well as the fully renovated Day Therapies Centre in the £7.6m build completed by Morrison Construction.
The sensitive nature of palliative care sought a design which would provide a homely and comforting environment for patients and close family members alike. The Cableflow Dr Su medical supply unit was chosen at the outset to provide essential patient care services at every bedhead on the scheme, whilst integrating with the room décor and other joinery items.
Dr Su is a bedhead containment solution manufactured in a variety of bespoke formats to suit any healthcare facility requirement. The product solution integrates power, data, nurse call, wall wash lighting and medical gases in a semi concealed configuration behind each bed location, contributing towards a pleasant patient environment but where essential services are easily at hand.
In this application at Highland Hospice the Dr Su provided all essential patient care services covering mains power, medical gas, nurse call system, data, patient monitoring and lighting control at the bedhead.

In response to population growth and increased operation numbers, the James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has completed the extension and refurbishment of its theatres complex at the James Paget Hospital in Great Yarmouth.
Morgan Sindall installed state-of-the-art theatre facilities, upgraded existing services, and created new patient recovery areas alongside the existing theatres.
The new facility includes three operating suites, trolley bays, ward areas, waiting and recovery areas, all fitted out with Cableflow SOLO bedheads.
The theatres are now equipped with the latest ventilation systems providing maximum flexibility for surgical procedures, including major surgery should the need arise. The Cableflow SOLO 5 medical supply unit was designed into the scheme and incorporates waste gases extract ductwork with low level extract. This concept provides the extract ductwork in the patient environment in a neat bedhead enclosure and negates the need to enter the wall structure.
The SOLO 5 was designed in varying sizes to meet the extract volumes required by the demands of the varying cubic areas as well as all essential patient care services covering mains power, medical gas, nurse call system, data, patient monitoring and lighting control at the bedhead.
The Cableflow Potential Equalisation Socket (PES-POAG) is now available in a range of 1, 2 and 4 gang facia plates for conventional wall mounting by installing electrical contractors.
The aluminium facia plate is powder coated in RAL 9010 with an anti-microbial (Steritouch) finish to suit almost any interior décor and ensure that Medical Location Groups 1 and 2 meet the earthing requirements of BS 7671 Section 710.415.2.1
Manufactured in High Wycombe (UK) the PES-WM range compliments the skeleton socket used by many OEM manufacturers in their own production of medical electrical equipment, medical devices and other medical supply units. This approach ensures the consistency of equipotential connection in the environment.
Individually boxed, complete with earth lead, facia fixing screws and connection set each plate is ready to install direct from its box.
Cableflow have completed a complete in-patent bedroom floor as part of the upgrading and updating of an International Private Patients wing in one of London’s most prestigious hospitals.
The financial cost of highly specialist NHS treatment and care at the teaching hospital is enabled by the financial contribution from private work undertaken in the International and Private Patient (IPP) Division. It is a vital service needed to allow the NHS side to continue treating complex cases with specialist treatment.
In IPP the case mix is varied, offering a breadth of specialisms all under one roof with more than 1,200 IPP inpatients and 4,746 outpatients from 84 different countries treated in the division during the last 12 months.
This project brings the facilities up to date in the hope of attracting more patients to the primary care facility as part of a healthcare tourism scheme as well as improving the general clinical environment. The Cableflow SOLObespoke solution has been carefully considered between the Trust, users, previous patients, the design team and contractors to ensure a neat integration with adjacent joinery, each bedroom presenting specific and unique constraints.
The complete bedhead installation, fully installed in just over three days with the benefit of offsite manufacturing, brings a modern day state of the art approach to bedhead services within a laminate facia enclosure presenting neatly sculptured lines.
Incorporating all patient care services at the bedhead, including patient monitor support track, medical equipment rails, patient entertainment arms and supports, examination lighting, the co-ordination of the bedhead has been carefully considered to ensure improved clinical functionality.
