Temporary and permanent clinic case studies
Read our case studies to see our temporary and permanent hospital buildings in action.
Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust: Permanent two-storey unit
The brief was to design and build a two-storey Clinical Support Unit (Ophthalmology) at Pinderfields Hospital with a quick turnaround.
This permanent building housed an eye clinic and office space using the latest Ibex steel frame modular building system. The speed it was constructed at meant that there was minimal disruption to hospital processes.
James Paget University Hospital: Modular hire solution
James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust needed a long-term facility on-site to be used as a GP streaming building for triage purposes to help reduce waiting times.
They hired six Algeco modular buildings to aid this and accommodate the predicted increase in patients. These have been arranged in a single-storey format to create consulting rooms connected by waiting areas and corridors.
James Paget University Hospital Interim Chief Operating Officer Nigel Kee said:
“Since it came online, the streaming service has been invaluable in helping patients who genuinely believe they need to come to hospital but, on arrival, are clinically assessed as being more suitable for GP care. The service has allowed us to ‘divert’ these patients direct to a GP based within the Emergency Department, saving time for both the patient and Emergency Department staff."
What is a modular or field hospital?
Field hospitals: These are temporary hospitals that are constructed and used temporarily to deal with high demand. They offer added support to existing hospital facilities by providing an extended space where staff can continue to give care. They can be used to deal with humanitarian disasters or simply to increase capacity.
Modular hospitals: This refers to the methods in which these temporary or field hospitals are often constructed. The components of these buildings are manufactured in sections off-site to enable easy assembly.
What are the benefits of a modular or temporary hospital?
As highlighted in the Health Infrastructure Plan, investment in new medical and healthcare buildings can be time-consuming and costly. In the instance of medical emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, a quick reaction to meet increasing demand is crucial to help save lives.
Modular hospitals and clinic buildings are built using stringent regulations and quality control measures to ensure they are fit for purpose. They can be used for as long as necessary before being taken down just as quickly as they were put into place.
