Responding to storage issues during the pandemic

Medstor acts quickly to provide storage for COVID-19 wards at London's largest critical care facility

The Royal London Hospital

A huge number of consumables were required to meet the needs of the influx of patients into the intensive care units at London hospital trusts during the first peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Medstor was brought in at very short notice to provide HTM 71 high-density storage cabinets for the storerooms serving the critical care and high dependency units at the Royal London Hospital, with all work to be completed as soon as possible.

Medstor responded quickly and effectively to ensure that the hospital had the storage it needed and helped to establish the largest critical care facility in London. As a few Covid-19 patients had already been admitted to one of the new wards when the fit-out started, Medstor installers had to wear full PPE and follow strict entry and exit rules, in line with government and hospital guidelines.

Popular in hospitals throughout the UK and overseas, Medstor HTM 71 high-density cabinets provide ample storage space for a wide variety of essential items. They feature Medstor’s unique tray and liner system, making it easy to access products and monitor stock levels. They are available in a wide range of colours and free-standing or wall-fixed options.

The storage solutions Medstor provided for the hospital are typical of the highly effective products it designs for healthcare facilities throughout the world. Every element of each cabinet, trolley or racking system has beautifully simple, clean, sleek lines that not only complement the theatre or ward design but offer increased storage capacity, better cost efficiency through improved stock control, and dramatically enhanced infection control. As everything made by Medstor is designed and built in-house in the UK, quality is controlled from start to finish, with a dedicated team working to guarantee the most successful and aesthetic utilisation of space.
