Video: Mobile Surgical Units - Affordable Innovation in a new NHS Era

Vanguard Healthcare Solutions Ltd

It is universally agreed that innovation must be the driving force behind the reconfiguration and evolution of the NHS. Innovation and innovative thinking, however, take many forms, and it is important that the pursuit of innovation does not focus solely on that which is new and high tech. In fact, it is often simple and accessible solutions - solutions which have been proven successful in practice - that provide an answer when a new challenge presents itself.
Shifting delivery of services from hospitals to community settings is one of the biggest challenges that has faced the NHS in living memory, and one that will require no small measure of innovative thinking to overcome. The answer, however, will not be found in high tech IT systems, or process management, or any new medical gadgets - these are a given in such a complex sector. In its simplest form, the problem is about being able to provide a suitable clinical environment in a local setting, quickly, safely and cost-effectively. 
This video demonstrates the ways in which mobile healthcare facilities can be used to tackle the issues facing the modern NHS, and deliver the accessible and affordable innovation that NHS organisations need in this era of cost-saving and efficiency.
