The number of NHS hospital beds has halved in the last 30 years (Source: See note 1) with sustainability and transformation plans being drawn up to develop health care systems even further. This is in an attempt to modernise services and provide better quality throughout a range of hospitals in the UK. Due to the reduction in Acute hospital beds there will always be a growing demand for quality and reliable hospital equipment for people nursed at home or in a professional care home setting.
At Shelden, we hope to be a part of the journey for hospitals that are looking to enhance their overall service for the comfort of patients or the the private individual at home looking for a cost effective but homely care bed.
