Plymouth NHS Trust – Bush Park

Central Records Library

MS Storage were tasked with providing a new Medical Records library containing 2.4 km of steel shelving for Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust.  Based at Bush Park, Estover, Plymouth brought together the records management of the Primary Care Trust and Plymouth Hospitals Records service into one central location. The Library contains 2,000 bays of mobile and static shelving housing up to 1,000,000 individual Patient Records. The system was carefully designed utilising both the existing and new shelving, which was dismantled and re installed onto mobile bases. This increased the storage capacity of the existing library by a massive 62 per cent.

Working in close cooperation with NHS staff, the records were still made available for use 24/7 during the installation programme, which was completed in agreed phases over a 4 month period.
