The Ifor Williams, Mobile Clinical Unit, is an innovative solution which has been designed to increase clinical capacity, whilst prioritising the safety of patients and staff and allowing for flexible use in a variety of healthcare contexts.
By working in collaboration with doctors and key stakeholders within the health service, we have been able to understand the challenges that they are facing and have designed a solution that should have a positive impact for both clinical staff and patients.
The Mobile Clinical Unit provides a number of solutions, not only as a safe and separate area for Covid-19 patient assessments, but also for wider clinical practice and other applications.
The Mobile Clinical Unit has separate entry points for patients and staff, to minimise direct contact. A separate antechamber links the staff entrance to the main consultation room. This separate space allows plenty of storage and gives members of clinical staff an area to safely prepare for the consultation and put on the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
The consultation room is large enough to ensure that 2m social distancing can be maintained, when direct contact with the patient is not required. The Mobile Clinical Unit has minimal surfaces to help with ease and speed of cleaning in between patient use.
Windows within the consultation room provide important ventilation with screens to ensure patient privacy.
Vinyl graphics can be used to add a logo, or for maximum impact, the whole trailer can be covered in a detailed wrap, giving your Mobile Clinical Unit visual appeal, branding, or even visual instructions for patients.
