Derriford Hospital

Radio-pharmacy Refurbishment

This high-tech, state of the art manufacturing facility was successfully delivered by Bassaire within tight fiscal and programme constraints. Executed on a turnkey basis, Bassaire undertook the scheme development, detailed design, ion and execution.

Nuclear Medicine at Derriford Hospital is the largest such department in the South West, with tertiary referrals from across the Peninsula. Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust now benefits from a fully refurbished Radiopharmacy having employed Bassaire to undertake the project. The new facility comprises of various Support/Prep/Change areas and two Aseptic Cleanrooms.

As part of a value engineering exercise, Bassaire provided a single pass AHU to eliminate any risk of cross contamination within the facility. The AHU still provided energy saving features, such as run around coils and invertor driven motors to assist with the annual running costs associated with a facility of this type.

By working collaboratively with the Trust’s professional team, Bassaire were able to engineer an integrated turnkey design solution which met all relevant EU directives, regulations and rules.
