The Royal Bournemouth Hospital is an acute general hospital based in Bournemouth and is a part of the Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. With roughly 60,000 patients seen to a year, it has been an honour to be able to design, manufacture and install graphics around the hospital to be seen and enjoyed by many.
At the hospital we have been involved in designing, manufacturing and installing internal directories; to help direct people around the hospital, wrapping entrance doors; to help create a warm welcome to the hospital and placing vinyl’s on ward doors; to help differentiate the different wards in the hospital.
The main challenges we have faced during these projects has been trying to work in such a busy environment and around sick patients. The wards at the hospital are constantly busy, so with this, sometimes we are unable to start or complete an installation. The reason for this is that some wards may be shut down due to many different reasons and with this we would have to reschedule with the client to come back and complete the task at a more convenient time. At Think Signs we aim to be versatile and help our clients wherever possible, so we are happy to reschedule and come back to complete any task and ensure that the client is fully satisfied with the work produced.
