Maximising efficiencies AND cutting costs
Independent testing, validation & repair of decontamination equipment for Private Hospitals
As a fully independent company, Medical Devices UK can test, validate and maintain all makes and models of decontamination equipment. This enables you to have all of your machines taken care of under one, hassle-free maintenance contract. This service helps your hospital increase efficiency AND cut costs without compromising on patient care or safety?
How we can seriously benefit your private hospital
Like you, we are well aware that 100% equipment capacity is essential if your hospital is to provide levels of care that meet, and even exceed, patient satisfaction. So we work closely with Decontamination Leads, Infection Control Managers, Estate Managers, Senior Charge Nurses and Finance Departments to help them minimise downtime due to machine failure.
It’s our job to help keep busy theatres and departments running like clockwork, so ALL work is carried out onsite.
But there’s more.
The standard of service we provide is always exceptional:
Our extensive experience of working with various machines and products has been honed over a long time. With Medical Devices UK, you’ll know your machines are being tested to INDUSTRY STANDARD, not just the manufacturer’s standard.
And, as for cost, we can save you at least 30% of the cost of the manufacturer’s ongoing maintenance contract, which will only increase your profit margin.
We work with all makes and models of endoscope washer disinfectors, AERs, scope storage cabinets, instrument washers, sterilizers, autoclaves and ultrasonic baths, offering exceptional service and value for money in the post-warranty period.
Servicing and testing schedules range from weekly water sampling or automatic control testing through to quarterly service and test visits, annual re-validations and commissioning. We can provide a full suite of services from IQ, OQ & PQ.
Are your machines still running to their original commissioning data? We can ensure they are, and we’ll only use the most up-to-date testing equipment available.
Medical Devices UK excels in the area of infection control, particularly in endoscopy theatres, CSSD and IDU. We can provide expertise in all aspects of decontamination including thermometric testing, preventative maintenance and microbiology.
All decontamination equipment is tested and maintained to BS EN ISO 15883 standards as well as the relevant Department of Health protocols including HTM 2030, HTM2010, HTM 2031, HTM 0105 and the new CFPP 01-.
With a wealth of knowledge and experience of decontamination, and access to an extensive network of suppliers, Medical Devices UK has the tools to rectify all types of problems with equipment testing, validation or commissioning.

Medical Devices UK can source and provide approximately 80% of the genuine spare parts and consumables for service and maintenance.
The other 20% are parts that are made by the manufacturer for the manufacturer. We can advise you in these instances and you can order the part directly from the manufacturer.
In most cases we’ll be on-site the same day. On the rare occasion this is not possible, you are still guaranteed to have an engineer on-site within 24 hours of your call.
All our engineers carry ‘boot stock’ parts, which result in a first-time fix 99% of the time.
We have the in-house knowledge, skillset and experience to service and maintain multi-manufacturer equipment. Additionally, most of our engineers have been trained by manufacturers. You can rest assured that with Medical Devices UK, the engineer that we send will know your particular machine inside out.
As we’re independent, we’re able to provide parts and servicing at a lower cost than the manufacturers. Therefore, the typical savings year-on-year are about 30%.
