Support services provider Interserve has installed a suite of decontamination units at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool.
The scheme supports the NHS foundation trust’s response to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
The contract follows Interserve Construction’s recent delivery of the NHS Nightingale Hospital Birmingham to the NHS to treat Covid-19 patients.
Interserve Construction was appointed to install and maintain 60 decontamination shower units. Initially, the team provided 15 decontamination units to allow hospital staff to shower after each shift and protect frontline workers.
The operator also set up another 45 shower units and has been engaged to maintain all 60 showers, cleaning them daily, stocking them with shower gels, towels, and emptying waste and removing dirty laundry to be cleaned.
Phil Shaw, divisional director, Interserve Construction, said: “The Interserve team at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital turned the project around in just four days to provide frontline NHS staff with the opportunity to shower after their long shifts prior to going home, helping to protect them and their families from Covid-19.
“As a long-term contractor to the NHS, under several framework agreements, we can bring considerable experience and wide-ranging capabilities to deliver even at the shortest notice.”
