Reporting for Duty: Mobile Operating Theatre

The Mobile Operating Theatre, treating animals in a more safe and efficient manner. But how did we handle such a bespoke spec?

Since then have equipped them with a fleet of animal transporter vans, as well as kitted out & decaled a number of Ford Connects, to aid in their quest to treat animals.

In 2017, Bott were contacted by the RSPCA with our latest project; the Mobile Operating Theatre. Deployed to bring the Hospital to the area, and treat animals in a more safe and efficient manner.

Bott joined forces with the RSPCA back in 2016

With their old vehicle worn and requiring additions, the RSPCA were looking for a modern successor, equipped with designated zones for operating and storage.

The challenges of this project were:

  • Keeping the vehicle under 3.5 tonne weight limit, meant the Bott team were poised to work together to create a heated, but lightweight operating table
  • Creating the operating lamp, and ensuring it could be stored in a safe and secure manner - drawing expertise from Bott's Electrical Development team and the RSPCA to find the perfect solution
  • Hot water system
  • Integrating specialist veterinary equipment

The Challenges

An extensive, 14-month project, utilising expertise from across our Vehicle Conversion team.

"Bott’s care and attention throughout the project was excellent and it was great to work with such a supportive company. This project will help the lives of many people and their pets, and we are grateful for Bott’s help in getting us on the road." - Ben Faulkner, Hospital Manager, RSPCA Greater Manchester Animal Hospital

"Everyone involved was excited by the nature of the project, and found it particularly rewarding to work on, for such a good cause." - Lily Chittim, Sales Coordinator, Bott Ltd
