Why Stoke Mandeville?

Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury is probably best known for its highly regarded Spinal Injuries Unit. However, it is an Acute unit serving Aylesbury and the surrounding area.

In the summer of 2020, a brand-new Sterile Services department opened. It is a state-of-the-art project. It is a modular concept build. The individual modules were built and fitted out here in the UK. This included the installation of the decontamination equipment. The units were later assembled on-site, and the building and equipment were subsequently commissioned.

We were very fortunate to be kindly invited to host our course there.

Sterile Services at Work

The SSD manager, Mark Sweeney, attended our last AP(D) course and told us that he thought having an AP(D) course at a site with decontamination equipment would be of great benefit to the candidates. The candidates will be able to see modern MMM Medical Equipment, washer disinfectors and sterilisers in use.

Holding a course in such a setting will give the candidates an authentic understanding of Sterile Services at work.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for Senior Decontamination Engineers, Sterile Services Managers, Lead Nurse Endoscopes, Laboratory Managers, and those aiming to advance their professional careers. The course is also suitable for individuals who are already practising AP(D) with over three years of experience, serving as both a refresher and an opportunity to deepen their knowledge.
