Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been contracted to deliver specialist electrical services at Leeds General Infirmary (LGI).

LGI is a large teaching hospital based in the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, and is part of the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

It is the designated major trauma centre for adults and children in West Yorkshire and one of the busiest in the UK, being rated in the top three in the country for providing the highest quality specialist care for patients with complex and often life-threatening multiple injuries. To the west of the main entrance on Thoresby Place is the School of Medicine, an 1893 Grade II listed building by W.H. Thorp in red brick, stone dressings and slate roofs in Perpendicular Revival style.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd are carrying out repairs to the lightning protection system in place at the hospital. Such systems are vital at hospitals and health care facilities as they rely on a wealth of sensitive electronic equipment that is vulnerable to damage from lightning surges.

As the UK’s leading provider of lightning protection services, PTSG has vast experience not only in designing and installing new systems but also in testing, inspecting and repairing existing systems. This ensures they continue to work efficiently, protecting building users and complying with British Standards.
