All staff need to be aware that any equipment fault or concern MUST IMMEDIATELY be reported to the Practice Manager or Assistant Practice Manager.

  • The practice completes annually via an external supplier annual inspection and calibration of equipment.  This is done at the same time as PAT electrical testing. Any failed items are immediately removed by them, repaired or replaced.
  • Certain clinical equipment have separate contracts for servicing and repair. i.e. the ECG unit and defibrillator.
  • The practice uses single use disposable items so does not autoclave..
  • Building equipment: we have in place a service for planned maintenance contracted to an external provider. Ad hoc repairs, breakdowns are usually dealt with at cost per case by the same company. Lifts, fire alarm are separately contracted.
