West Midlands transport group procures state-of-the-art paediatric and neonatal trolleys

Birmingham Children’s Hospital has procured new paediatric and neonatal trolleys to ensure the safety of critically-ill young patients travelling between units in the region.

The bespoke equipment from ParAid Medical will be used by the hospital’s new Kids Intensive Care and Decision Support Service (KIDS), which ferries youngsters between children’s intensive care units, operating theatres and other emergency departments across the West Midlands.

Phil Wilson, lead nurse and co-ordinator at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, said: “Around 700 patients a year will require the use of a specialist trolley during their hospital stay. Our hospital relies on innovative, fit-for-purpose patient transport equipment that is easy for our staff to use. Over our eight year business relationship with ParAid Medical, we’ve continually found their products to be tailor-made for the medical needs of the children we care for and have allowed our staff to keep patients safe and uphold our high standards for care.”
