Nature of client end user business

The Queen’s Hospital was opened in 1917 in the grounds of Frognal House. Initially it provided pioneering plastic surgery to First World War soldiers with facial injuries. After 1925 it served as a London County Council “out-hospital”, and was renamed Queen Mary’s Hospital in 1930. 

For the first time radiotherapy treatment for cancer patients is available in outer south east London. Previously patients have had to travel into central London for treatment. 

Guy’s Cancer at QMH includes not only two new linear accelerator machines for radiotherapy treatment and 14 chemotherapy treatment chairs but also a new Dimbleby Macmillan Support Centre, an information and supportive care service for cancer patients and their families.

What We Brought to the Job

Close liaison and cooperation with the management team and mechanical contractor. Works were programmed to be flexible to ensure there was no loss of service to public areas during opening hours.

Comfort have provided a range of services for me over the years, ranging from validation and investigation works, to full commissioning services and post PC evaluations. In all cases their works have been competitive, professional and accurate. We will continue to use CCS when feasible to do so. Ivan Collins, Parkeray Limited
