Clinical Technology

Clinical Technology directly operates and oversees 3 specialist sections:

  • Critical Care (CC)
  • Therapies & Diagnostics (D&T)
  • Theatres & Anaesthetics (T&A)

The sections are devoted to the acquisition, maintenance, repair, decommissioning and disposal of Medical Devices, which under the European Directive 2007/47/ec are defined as: any instrument, apparatus, appliance, software, material or other article that is used alone or in combination, including software specifically for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, that the manufacturer intends for use in human beings. Such devices are used for:

  • Diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, treatment, or alleviation of disease
  • Diagnosis, monitoring, treatment, alleviation of, or compensation for an injury or handicap
  • Investigation, replacement, or modification of the anatomy or of a physiological process
  • Control of conception

In general Clinical Technology Department only deals in the first two of these, however the department also holds responsibility for the beds, trolleys and other patient support devices.
