Bedford Hospital, Bedford
Bedford Hospital has been providing healthcare services to people living in and around Bedford for over 200 years. In late 2011, approval was granted for the installation of a second CT Scanner to meet increasing demand for appointments & improve patient experience. The GE Optima 16 slice unit was installed in an existing room which required additional radiation shielding to house the new machine.
5 tonnes of lead shielding was installed on the walls and ceiling. Calder also supplied and fitted a 2100mm x 1100mm RD50 lead glass observation window.
