It is key to a successful project within a live hospital, that we constantly liaise closely with the client and clinical team throughout the project to create minimum impact on nursing and patients.
As we were working within a live hospital department, it was essential to keep noise and disruption to a minimum to allow daily nursing functions to continue seamlessly. We liaised closely with the client to achieve this.
