The Trust owns approximately 36,000 medical devices valued in excess of £130 million. The purpose of clinical engineering is to manage this and ensure that the benefits of this technology are maximised, and the risks minimised. This involves us in pre-purchase evaluations, acceptance tests, maintenance and development of specialist items. We are also involved with the education and training of device users, and assist risk management following incidents or where equipment is subject to safety and hazard notices.
