Since December 2014, Althea has successfully installed 23 new ultrasound systems at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL). These installations have been for a range of departments including Echocardiology, Antenatal, Vascular and General Medicine across the Trust’s three main sites – Leicester General Hospital, Royal Infirmary, and Glenfield Hospital.
Throughout the vendor-neutral selection process Althea has organised a number of demonstrations from across the supplier base. The Trust was able to evaluate the range of equipment available and with the impartial advice of Althea’s modality experts selected the right equipment to optimise clinical outcomes and meet patient needs. Through their managed service contract UHL has installed a mix of ultrasounds from across the supplier base including GE, Philips and Hitachi.
