ModuleCo are delighted to have handed over a modular endoscopy and training centre at Torbay Hospital, which is now open and serving patients awaiting diagnosis and treatment for cancer and bowel disease.
The facility marks the completion of the first of a two-phase project that will also see cutting-edge modular operating theatres delivered on the same hospital site.
The state-of-the-art healthcare facility incorporates two procedure rooms, operating with a dual-access dirty utility and a scope store. The procedure rooms are supported by a six-bed recovery area, split to enable gender separation and each equipped with bariatric provision. The facility was designed with all required supporting accommodation, consisting of multiple pre-admission rooms, staff rest areas, offices, a seminar space and storage.
A formal opening of the facility took place on 14th November 2023 by chairman Sir Richard Ibbotson and Lord Julian Darling, receiving a very positive response from staff at the Hospital who were “…delighted by the quality of the finish”. The opening marked a significant milestone in the Trust’s “Building a Brighter Future” programme to improve patient experience and outcome of care.
Matt Guppy, Senior Project Manager Engineer, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Amazing work by the whole team who have assisted us in delivering a fantastic new facility for the Endoscopy department here at Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, on time and within budget!”.
