Equipment loans and Asset Management 

We review medical equipment on the market, to identify what our Trust requires to care for patients.  We check devices before purchase to ensure statutory compliance, suitability for intended use and compatibility with other equipment. We ensure that the correct process for the acceptance of medical devices is followed.  Relevant safety tests and other checks are undertaken to demonstrate compliance with safety regulation, that the equipment is suitable for the intended purpose. We loan out equipment from our libraries for episodes of patient care.  We also track maintenance, repairs, alerts and recalls. We provide technical assessments of the status of our medical equipment and plan replacement programmes.
