Risk Management and Governance

Medical Device Training

Safety and Lessons learned

We ensure that medical devices in our Trust are suitable for their intended purpose, maintained, stored securely and used properly, in line with legislation and regulatory guidelines.  We provide training for clinical staff on medical devices, and manage the medical devices training information in our Trust.  We use a Medical Devices Training Information System (MELVIS) for this purpose. We monitor safety and identify lessons learned when things go wrong with medical devices.  We work with clinical educators and managers for this activity, and liaise with regulatory bodies.
