Princess Royal University Hospital, Bromley
In 2002 UME created the Managed Equipment Service solution to the Trust to fund an initial £10 million capital purchase of equipment, and to subsequently maintain and replace/upgrade this equipment, over the 30 year term of the contract, for the new £155 million Princess Royal University Hospital in Bromley, Kent. The contract to undertake the capital expenditure and commission the equipment was successfully achieved in February 2003.
This scheme has benfited from being able to use UME’s Commissioning and Equipment Services skills to solve many practical and operational issues. UME operated the helpdesk to ensure the EBME quality control and processing where completed and on time. UME coordinated the purchase of new and replacement medical equipment in line with relevant protocols.
