Electrical requirements for the electrical installation of medical radiological equipment
The course will consider the radiological aspects of the 2017 DH guidance “HTM06-01 Electrical services supply and distribution”. The new guidance has been re-structured and is more clearly split into two major policies – business risk and patient risk. The requirements of this document need to be understood when a new radiology room is purchased especially that from now on, electrical installations compliance management will now be measured under the NHS Performance Assessment Model (PAM).
The course is for experienced project managers, medical and x-ray engineers and focuses on the relevant points for medical radiological installations. There is a summary session at the beginning of the course that other healthcare staff may wish to attend in order to attain a brief overview of the new document. This summary session would be aimed at radiographers and medical physics experts who are involved with medical radiological equipment purchasing and commissioning, and will explain the new policies and gives reference to the relevant sections of the guidance.
This short course is intended to be run at the customer’s site at their convenience.
