New Department for MEMD (Medical Equipment Management Dept) Hooraahh ! :-)
After almost 4 years of waiting for our turn to move into a brand new department at the hospital, this week (and most of last week) we finally managed to do it at last!.
The old department had been the home of MEMD for approx the last 30 years, and to be honest it was in worse structural condition than my garden shed (and that is bad!). Every time it rained we had to get out the buckets to catch the water that would inevitibly flow through the seive like flat roof, and the paintwork within the building was in a terrible state due to the damp conditions.
Thank goodness then that this week we are now completing our move from the 1970's into the 21st centuary, and I can tell you that the new building,aside from a few minor quirks, is turning out to be a much more fitting location for a medical equipment department tasked with maintaining and repairing several million pounds worth of medical devices...and we don't feel like we are working in a shed at the bottom of someones garden anymore :-)....hooorraahhh !.
