Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has completed essential Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) at several London hospitals.

Work was carried out on behalf of CBRE at St Mary’s Hospital, Charring Cross Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital, which are all part of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, and Royal Berkshire Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital.

The sites required rigorous assessment followed by detailed planning in order to manage the logistical challenges when working on NHS sites and provide consistency, continuity and quality of testing. A Contract Manager was appointed for the duration of the contract and the same PAT team was also maintained throughout the contract, with a lead engineer on site providing a point of liaison for the client.

Work at these hospitals will continue and a review of this contract will allow continued improvement of our work at these sites.

Paul Teasdale, PTSG’s CEO, said: “There are a number of sensitivities and issues that arise when delivering services of this nature at hospitals. Naturally these sites are all critical and nothing can get in the way of the vital day-to-day services that they provide.”

PTSG provides a multitude of specialist services for the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Imperial College Healthcare provides care for more than one million people each year, offering a range of community services across north west London. Other recent PAT services by PTSG at London hospitals includes work to the Cancer Treatment Centre at Guys Hospital in south east London
