Medical Equipment Contract Appendix
There are numerous occasions when medical equipment will be brought into NUH for the purposes of a research study. All equipment entering Trust premises are required to undergo functionality and safety testing by the Clinical Engineering Department prior to being approved for use on NUH patients.
The R&D and Clinical Engineering Departments have worked closely together to align their processes and R&D has generated an Appendix which addresses the issues surrounding medical equipment. This template Appendix should be incorporated into the Clinical Trial Agreement for any research bringing equipment into the Trust and should be brought to the attention of the Sponsor/equipment provider at the earliest opportunity to ensure minimal delay in the contractual negotiation stages.
