The Medical Electronics department, within the CES, provides a comprehensive medical equipment management service and currently supports in excess of 32,000 medical devices.

We work closely with health care professionals, patients and equipment suppliers to offer a service that meets, and we hope exceeds, the level of care expected of today’s clinical technologists.

Medical Electronics has a long tradition of providing high quality medical equipment services to both the NHS and private health care providers throughout the Southwest. Our services range from ad-hoc breakdown repairs, to fully managed medical maintenance contracts. We work closely with equipment suppliers and offer a one-stop shop to our customers with regular site visits and contract reviews. In addition, Medical Electronics work with many GPs, health centres, physiotherapists, chiropodists and others.

For details on equipment maintenance contracts, or how we can help you, please call Clinical Engineering Services on 01803 654751.
