Non-urgent advice: Profile
Mechanical engineering technician
Clinical Engineering Innovation
Healthcare science specialism
The clinical engineering innovation team develops novel medical devices to address unmet clinical needs. My primary role in the team is machining parts on lathes, mills, working with highly dextrous fine tools in the creation of prototypes and medical devices for use within CUH. I also conduct quality control checks on externally manufactured parts and contribute to design for manufacture of medical devices being developed by the team.
My role was the external lead and planning of overhaul of facilities for COVID safe workspace. The space itself is named the “Innovation Space”. My team worked on a variety of projects to maximise the availability of the necessary medical devices and PPE at CUH.
