ILUX has been part of a multi-disciplinary team that created a brand-new renal clinic for patients in East Lancashire.
Long-standing client Diaverum partnered with East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust to build a new renal dialysis centre on the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital site.
The Laurie Solomon Renal Centre Blackburn went live on Monday 15 August 2022 and features 24 dialysis stations, clinic facilities and consulting rooms. The purpose-built facility will mean that patients can enjoy more comfortable surroundings and have access to the latest technology to enhance their treatments.
ILUX worked with the project team from concept through to deployment, working with architects and builders of the clinic’s infrastructure. ILUX advised on the building flow and security systems, from a data protection and confidentiality perspective. The team installed all the audio-visual equipment, including digital conferencing systems to allow the Trust to hold remote meetings between the renal centre and the main hospital, as well as provide remote diagnosis and treatment for patients.
Lisa Jordan, Country Manager for Diaverum UK, said: “Seeing patients and the enthusiasm for our new clinic makes all the hard work over the past few months so rewarding. It was a real team effort from ILUX and our other contractors.
ILUX aren’t just a supplier, they are a true partner and influence the IT strategy and deployment throughout our business here in the UK. They are the beating heart behind our business.”
Simon Page, CCO at ILUX said: “Opening a new clinic takes a huge amount of work in the planning stages, ensuring we have the right infrastructure in place to get the facility up and running, but also to make it future-proof and ready to meet long-term objectives.
Our team worked into the night and over the weekend, so that all the medical equipment was in position and the technology was ready to deliver for the Monday morning treatments at 06:30 am.
This experience has been a true testament to the #TeamILUX spirit. We are very proud to have played a role in creating an amazing new facility for patients in East Lancashire.”
