Healthcare professionals from across Ireland gathered at an event to mark the launch of a new partnership in the mobile technology sector.

UK-based medical technology company Vanguard Healthcare Solutions and its Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland distributor Accuscience hosted a joint event in Dublin earlier this month.

Senior estates and clinical professionals from across the country met in the city’s Helix venue, part of the DCU Campus. Here they had the opportunity to hear from Steve Peak, Development and Delivery Director at Vanguard, on the different ways mobile healthcare solutions can impact on the heath service and its provision.

They also had the opportunity to take a tour of the very latest mobile laminar flow theatre launched by Vanguard. This new unit provides a complete solution including anaesthesia and recovery rooms, scrub and utility areas as well as a fully-equipped operating theatre.

Steve Peak of Vanguard said: “It was a pleasure to welcome so many of Ireland’s senior healthcare professionals to our launch event. This was a chance for them to see for themselves what is possible with mobile healthcare solutions, how they can help in planned refurbishments or emergency situations, or simply to add capacity where it is needed.”

James McCann, General Manager of Accuscience said: “The Vanguard units, along with their supporting enabling works and staffing, provide much-needed high quality additional capacity for healthcare providers. The launch event was an opportunity to show professionals just what these mobile solutions look like, and what they can offer. We’re delighted to be working with Vanguard to offer these services across Ireland.”

Vanguard mobile clinical units can increase clinical capacity in both planned and emergency situations and can help with reducing procedure waiting times.

Alongside its temporary mobile clinical environments such as operating theatres, endoscopy suites, day surgery, clinics and ward space which help healthcare providers, including the NHS, increase patient capacity and clinical space, Gloucester-based Vanguard also provide highly trained support staff.

Accuscience is based in Co. Kildare and took over management and distribution of Vanguard units and services in Ireland at the beginning of July. Complete solutions are available through Vanguard, including enabling works and connecting corridors, along with individual unit development and staffing.

All of these is available in Ireland through Accuscience, a leading provider of specialist equipment, products, consumables and services.
