Planned maintenance of Medical Devices - NHS Guidance ?

Chris Pearson
Hi all,
Could anyone point me in the direction of any NHS Guidance notes on the mandatory requirements for annual maintenance of all medical devices please ?
Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Fairly sure annual is not actually stated anywhere.  Maintenance frequency would be based on manufacturer advice.  Even the usual annual electrical safety test is interpreted from the wording 'regular electrical testing'
