Glenfield Hospital

When Glenfield Hospital in Leicester sought to upgrade its 18-man ward, we were appointed for the electrical contracting work. This case study looks into the project requirements and the solutions provided by the DG Scott team.

Requirements

Glenfield Hospital’s 18-man ward needed a comprehensive overhaul of its electrical works to ensure smooth operations and, most importantly, the safety and well-being of patients and staff at the hospital. The scope of work encompassed a multitude of critical systems, including electrical works for the fire alarms, CCTV surveillance, and nurse call systems. With patient care at the forefront, the project timeline was set at six months.

How We Helped

We approached the project with our experienced understanding of the healthcare sector. Leveraging our experience, our team designed and implemented a tailored electrical solution to meet the specific needs of Glenfield Hospital’s 18-man ward.

 

Fire Alarm System

Recognising the importance of fire safety in healthcare facilities, DG Scott deployed electrical works for state-of-the-art fire alarm systems throughout the ward. These systems were strategically placed to provide comprehensive coverage, ensuring early detection and swift response in the event of any fire-related incidents.

CCTV Surveillance

We supported the electrical works for the CCTV cameras across key areas of the ward, enhancing security and enabling staff to monitor activities closely. This proactive approach not only fosters a safer environment but also promotes peace of mind among patients and staff alike.

Nurse Call System

Efficient communication is the backbone of quality healthcare. To facilitate communication between patients and caregivers, DG Scott helped on the electrical works for a cutting-edge nurse call system. This system enables patients to summon assistance promptly, ensuring timely response and personalised care—a vital component in enhancing patient satisfaction and outcomes.
