Modular storage system

NHS Estates published Health Technical Memorandum 71 (HTM71) offers hospitals guidance on how to optimise their storage practices. It recommends the use of modular storage systems - including special trays, baskets, trolleys and cupboards - to improve workflow, safety and delivery speed between departments.

Storage systems specialist, ZARGES, offers a specific HTM71 storage range, designed to meet the demands of busy healthcare environments. 

HTM71 allows the products to be placed in the tray, then the whole tray can be relocated to the point of use, therefore reducing the number of times a product is physically handled and thus reducing potential contamination or damage. 

Modular storage addresses many of the inefficiencies and issues of standard, fixed storage. Greater adaptability means supplies take up less room, creating a tidier and more efficient environment. Stock control and retrieval becomes easier as staff movement will not be obstructed or restricted by fixed storage space
