Communicating Patient information is considered a priority at Yeovil District Hospital, a 360 bed acute Hospital in Somerset. In a recent review of Infection control, the Trust made the decision that all notice boards should be covered to aid cleaning. Ned Binding, Deputy Director of Facilities asked Premier Concepts if the current open board design supplied since 2001 could be modified to meet this new brief.

The opportunity was taken to assess if the current information boards were still in the most useful positions, and due to recent department changes in the Hospital it was agreed to relocate two of the five boards supplied to new locations where patients and visitors could access the information put on them by the Trust more readily.  To address the Trusts concerns over infection control, the new boards were supplied with lockable cabinets covering the pin board areas. The lockable pin board cabinets have the additional benefit of giving the Trust complete control over the material displayed.

Paul Tyler, Senior Project Manager at Premier Concepts comments: “The ability to respond to individual hospital requirements in this way comes from the experience gained working with over 180 NHS hospitals in England & Wales, ranging from the largest acute sites to smaller community hospitals and health centres. Each board is designed and tailor made to meet the requirements of the area it is located in.”

Ned Binding adds: “Without a flexible and responsive approach to service delivery, Premier Concepts would be unable to meet the requirements of the Trust with regard to patient safety, security and communication”.
