Relocation of Histo Glass slides Leicester

Client: University Hospitals of Leicester
Sector: Life Sciences

The Team responsible for the storage of 7.5m Blood slides currently had them located in three different locations across the trust locations at Leicester General, Glenfield and Leicester Royal Hospitals

The Leicester Royal location was the most challenging due to the slides being held within a basement, the other sites were ground floor storage locations, but not without their obstacles, tight working locations, loose material held on shelving to be packed and unpacked, all items were to be relocated and stored in a new refurbished block within Glenfield Hospital.

We dedicated a week to the two locations which were the easiest. The Royal hospitals required three weeks due to the difficult basement location and therefore lots of stairwork.

The move was successfully completed by within the required timescale. All slides were transported to their new locations and all loose boxed material re-positioned within the new racking.


  • Relocation from three sites; Glenfield/Leicester General/ Leicester Royal into Glenfield Hospital storage
  • Glass slides all held within slide cabinets and loose shelving
  • Packing and unpacking
  • Relocation and positioning of glass slide cabinets at Glenfield storage facility
  • The move was completed over multiple weekday phases, over a five week period.

I just wanted to say thank you so, so much for all of your help with scheduling this work; your team has been absolutely brilliant, as always. Neil and Donna were extremely complimentary about the work that your team have undertaken – I don’t think that it could have gone any more smoothly than it did.
