Glasgow event to focus on ‘flexible’ infrastructure’s key role

Healthcare professionals from across Scotland are being invited to a ‘specialist event’ on 22 February in Glasgow hosted by medical technology organisation, Vanguard Healthcare Solutions, which will explore the Scottish Waiting Times Improvement Plan, and look at how flexible infrastructure strategies can help NHS Boards across the country meet waiting times for diagnostic and surgical procedures.

Individuals working within hospitals across the UK in clinical, management, or estates roles are invited to join Vanguard at the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in Glasgow on 22 February 2019 from 10.30 am to 2 pm.

Lindsay Dransfield, commercial director at Vanguard, said: “The Scottish Government recognises the increasing demand on the whole system of health and care, and has issued an improvement plan which focuses on the length of time people are waiting for these procedures. The Waiting Times Improvement Plan outlines the steps and timescales alongside significant and focused additional investment. The use of temporary infrastructure, such as mobile wards, endoscopy, and theatres, has been endorsed as a viable and cost-effective way to support additional capacity in both theatre and inpatient services. Our event will look at how these temporary solutions can help Scotland’s NHS Boards meet their capacity needs in the future.”

Vanguard Healthcare Solutions said: “Speakers at the free-to-attend event will introduce flexible infrastructure strategies which can be deployed across Scotland, and give delegates the chance to hear about a proven solution already working in Scotland, from the professionals using it every day. There is also an opportunity to tour an existing, fully-equipped and operational mobile solution at Golden Jubilee, and meet specific professionals in clinical, management, and estates roles who can answer questions on those areas of expertise.”
