HIAB moves Container at World Famous Sussex Hospital

Sussex Transport can move or transport your container or cabin with one of their HIAB crane mounted vehicles – which is what we sucessfully did last week at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead.

The Queen Victoria Hospital is the specialist reconstructive surgery centre for the south east of England, and also provides services at clinics across the region. It has become world famous for its pioneering burns and plastic surgery.

Founded as a hospital in 1863, Queen Victoria Hospital was built on its current site in the 1930s and developed as a specialist burns unit by Sir Archibald McIndoe during World War II, when it became world famous for  pioneering treatment of RAF and allied aircrew who were badly burned or crushed and required reconstructive plastic surgery.

Both the Hurricanes and Spitfires had powerful engines that gave both planes the speed they needed during the battle.  They both carried considerable quantities of highly inflammable liquid. If one of the fighters caught fire – which was a very common occurrence if hit by enemy fire – the flames spread very quickly throughout the plane, causing  injuries to a pilot. Those who survived such occurrences could be horrifically burned. It was the work done on these men that made McIndoe – and the burns unit – world famous. Such was the pioneering work done by McIndoe that the pilots were nicknamed “Guinea Pigs” simply because what was being done on them was so new and no-one was over sure whether the operations would be successful. Pilots who underwent plastic surgery belonged to the Guinea Pig Club.

To this day the Queen Victoria Hospital is world famous for its highly skilled surgeons, its nursing staff and level of care – which is second to none.  The annual survey of patients at all hospitals in England, show that QVH achieved the highest scores out of all 161 hospital trusts.
