High Technology Medical Equipment

I am writing to obtain information about the use of specific high technology medical equipment by your trust in the year 2015.


To outline my query as clearly as possible, I am requesting details on the hospitals use of:
i. LINAC (linear accelerator)
ii. PET (Positron Emission tomography)
iii. CT (Computerised tomography)
iv. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
v. Lithotripters

 


For each of the above machines which the hospital has had on site either presently or at any time since January 2015, please answer the following:

1. Please state the make and model of the machine,

2. The hospital in which it is located

3. Its value (an insurance valuation is fine. If unavailable, please state the nature of the valuation provided)

4. Annual maintenance costs

5. Expected weekly operating hours (ie Siemens MRI: 09:00 – 17:00 M-F, etc)

6. The number of separate uses of the machine in 2015 (for example, LINAC – 3000 separate uses; Lithotripter – 5000 separate uses)

7. Whether the machine has been bought, replaced, or disposed of during this timeframe

              1. The date of such an event
2. The reason

 

Please ensure that for each of the questions 1-7 it is clear to which machine the data relates. If you have, for example, two MRI scanners of the same brand, please identify them as “Siemens MRI a” and “Siemens MRI b” or other appropriate system.
