PROJECT MOVE

Take Clinical Services Direct to the Public

In a world where we have to navigate highly contagious viruses like SARS, COVID and others, it is becoming increasingly important to have the capability to deliver a broad selection of clinical services in a variety of outreach settings. Many of these are not fit for purpose and may discourage people from coming in for treatment.

Our MOVE™ clinical bays are intended to convert standard public transportation vehicles into rapid, responsive Mobile Treatment Units (MTUs) that can be used for a wide range of use cases.

We are facing unprecedented challenges

There is an urgent Public Health requirement for cost efficient mass vaccination programmes - both seasonal flu and COVID vaccines.

This year there has been a significant increase in the amount of seasonal flu vaccines being offered by including an additional cohort of around 15m people (e.g. over 50’s & shielding) representing increased pressure on the health system.

Projections by the NHS Confederation show that the NHS waiting list is expected to rise from about 4.2 million currently to about 10 million by Christmas.

This assumes the health service makes a steady return to full capacity within the next 12 months.

In a new report, the NHS Confederation said healthcare services were operating at a reduced capacity of about 60% because of infection control measures.

COVID19 safety compliance and preservation of health system capacity requires a cost-efficient solution to divert vulnerable populations from health settings for delivery of these vaccines.

Typically this is occurring in community settings such as flu surgeries in village halls where social distancing adherence is lower, and risk of transmission is high.

This model requires target populations attending in person, often using public transport to do so, representing further community contagion risk. Populations in rural communities run the risk of being left out of mass immunisation programmes altogether.

Health system capacity risks being overwhelmed by the combination of delivery of vaccines and the triaging of a significant backlog of patients accumulated during the lockdown.

We will be living with COVID19 for the foreseeable future and large scale vaccination programmes will be an annual requirement for the protection of both public health and economic recovery and security.

Supporting the NHS with Mobile Clinical Bays

MOVE medical bays are intended to be an additional tool that can be rapidly deployed by any local NHS entity be it a GP office, local hospital or Primary Care Network at a moment's notice to respond to a constantly evolving situation.

Rapid

MOVE medical bays can be rapidly installed in any standard single or double-decker bus in a matter of days by any local coachworks company - no special tools or skills required.

Responsive

Once MOVE bays have been fitted, buses can be deployed to any location required  - no need to wait for specialised transport equipment or licenses to drive to the desired work site.

Reusable

Once the initial requirement has been fulfilled, MOVE bays can be stored in containers ready to be installed again to meet any future need.

Frequently Asked Questions

As you can imagine, people have had a variety of questions about the MOVE project and many of them follow common themes. We've complied a list of the most commonly asked questions and provided answers to help everyone better understand the project.

What Exactly are "mobile clinical bays"?

Project MOVE clinical bays are individual workspaces specifically designed to fit into single-decker buses and high top vans. The kits include all the walls, supports, fixtures, fittings, lights, power sockets and (depending on your requirements) storage lockers, fridges, etc.

We do not supply buses or vans but we do have strong relationships with national bus companies like Go-Ahead Group and leasing companies like AFL Leasing for vans where we will be happy to make introductions.

We currently have Kits available for Mercedes Citaro buses, Mercedes Sprinter and VW Crafter vans.

How much do the kits cost?

There are two types of kit currently available:

- Bus Kits for 2-door Mercedes Citaro buses including 3 bays and a staff area have a list price of £20,000.
- Van Kits for high-top, long wheelbase Mercedes Sprinter, VW Crafter, or Ford Transit vans including 2 bays have a list price of £15,000.

Prices include all fixtures & fittings and labour for installation.

Prices DO NOT INCLUDE bus or van associated costs.
