In addition to the base and wall storage units, worktops and shelving prescribed from the Healthline range, David Bailey Furniture Systems also supplied custom-made nurse stations for the hospital’s reception areas.
Mansell’s Site Manager for the Great Ormond Street Hospital installation, commented: “As this refurbishment project incorporated such a range of areas in the hospital, it was important to select a furniture supplier that was able to offer a diverse product range.
