ASGB builds Britain’s First Mobile CSSD

May 13th, 2019

A Smith Gt Bentley is pleased to announce the delivery of Britain’s first mobile Central Sterile Services Department (CSSD) for Vanguard Healthcare Solutions Ltd: under its international brand umbrella Q-bital

At an overall length of 15m and two extensive slide outs giving an opened-out width of almost 6.5m the unit is of a modular chassis-free design which gives almost ground-level access when deployed.

Working closely with Vanguard, its partner Getinge and their advisers ASGB was able to design and deliver the unit in a telescoped time frame. The requirements for the unit were very challenging and the amount of equipment included is considerable:

• Clean packing room
• Dirty instrument cleaning room
• Post sterilisation processing room
• Dirty utility area
• 2 Getinge 86 series washer disinfectors
• 2 Getinge GSS67H steam sterilizers
• HEPA-filtered environmental air
• Track and trace system
• Integrated RO system with water softener and brine tank
• Integrated and dedicated cleaning work bench
• Packing work stations
• Electronic data centre
• Staff changing area, including WC and hand wash facilities

The unit has been very positively received and is already working on its first assignment at Leeuwarden Medical Centre in the Netherlands.
