The Medical Engineering Department has workshops on each of the three main hospital sites and undertakes inspection, testing, maintenance and repair of existing medical equipment to ensure that it is fit for purpose at all times. The department also commssions new equipment, offers advice and guidance on the purchase of medical equipment, disposes of old medical equipment and now provides a loan out service through the on site Medical Equipment Libraries.
This support service is essential in enabling patient care to be delivered in a safe, comfortable environment, and to ensure that there is minimum disruption to healthcare activity.
