The North West and North Wales Paediatric Transport Service (NWTS) provide 24/7 stabilisation and transfer of critically ill children and babies. They mobilise from the base in Warrington with ambulance, clinical specialists and equipment to any district hospital in the North West and North Wales. The child/baby is transferred receiving full intensive care to regional paediatric intensive care units at Alder Hey or Manchester.

The NWTS team conduct approximately 650 transfers per year and have 3 trolleys of equipment on standby at the base for this purpose. They currently need an Intellivue MP5 Monitor to standardise the equipment across the 3 trolleys ensuring the best possible care for every child/baby. This monitor displays vital information on a screen in the ambulance allowing all the clinical specialists to assess the patient constantly.

MedEquip4Kids have agreed to provide NWTS with the monitor which will benefit babies and children across the North West region of the UK.

“The switch adapted toys have been a wonderful addition to our school. Both staff and children were thrilled to have some new exciting resources. The children love the lights and movement many of these switch toys have and are highly motivated to explore and investigate how to make them work. They have been great for pupils to develop their understanding of cause and effect and we have also noticed improved concentration and engagement when using them. Often it can be difficult to find toys that are robust enough to withstand lots of heavy use AND be interesting and fun. These new resources tick all those boxes. They have made a noticeable impact on the children’s development in this area.”
