BOC Ltd is the key partner of Guys and St Thomas' NHS Trust, behind the recently-opened Lane Fox REMEO® Respiratory Centre - the UK’s first purpose-built weaning and home ventilation centre.
The 20-bed purpose-built centre, located in the grounds of the East Surrey hospital, operates as a satellite to the renowned Lane Fox Respiratory Unit at St Thomas’ Hospital in central London. It will enable more NHS patients to access leading clinical expertise in ‘weaning’ patients from invasive mechanical ventilation and enable them to eventually return home.
By moving patients out of intensive care wards and into a multi-disciplinary specialist centre, the Lane Fox REMEO® Respiratory Centre will also free up hospital intensive care beds for other acutely ill people.
With extended visiting hours and a relaxing and homely environment, the centre will improve outcomes in complex respiratory patients. In addition to providing specialist care, the centre will also be a major training resource including helping carers to learn how to look after people who continue to need to receive mechanical ventilation at home.
