The Fast Track to Recovery – Howorth at Warwick Hospital

21 May 2012

Earlier this year, Warwick Hospital, part of the South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, officially opened its newly refurbished theatres following a £4m redevelopment programme.

The fast track programme required Howorth to redevelop five operating theatres and a recovery room.  Two of the theatres have been fitted with the Howorth Exflow Ultra Clean Ventilation Canopy, making them suitable for orthopaedic surgery as well as general surgery.

The new facility also means that Warwick Hospital is the first in the West Midlands to have an integrated theatre with advanced laparoscopic technology, allowing surgeons to control the equipment for surgery from a touch screen monitor.  The surgical team will also be able to pre-set surgery requirements, reducing preparation time and allowing more patients to be treated.

Howorth was brought into the project by C A Sothers, an approved contractor to many NHS Trusts and a supply chain member to a number of main contractors that carry out Primary and Acute Healthcare projects.
