1   Medical Electrical Installations – HTM 06-01 and BS7671 Section 710 (Medical Locations).

* This course provides 6 CPD credits in accordance with the CPD Scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists.*

This course is approved by the British Institute of Radiology.

Duration: – 5-6 hours in a classroom environment with an initial two hour summary session for radiographers and medical physics experts who are involved with medical radiological equipment purchasing and commissioning.

The course is for estates engineers, project managers, electrical contractors, medical and x-ray engineers and especially focuses on the relevant points for medical radiological installations.  The course can be extended into two days to cover actual testing.

The new guidance has been structured to better clarify the purpose of final circuits and to compliment BS7671 (known colloquially as the Wiring Regulations). It is important to note that MEIGaN no longer applies.

The course is structured so that other healthcare staff may attend the course for the first session in order to attain a brief overview of the new document.  It is important to note that the new NHS Premises Assurance Model (PAM) will now apply to electrical safety.

Course Contents:

  1. HTM 06-01 Document structure, aims, DH general policy and how it associates with BS7671
  2. Associated documents and UK regulatory structures
  3. Final Circuits which include Medical IT (blue sockets)
  4. Earth systems and measurement of these earth systems for medical radiological equipment installed in Medical Locations

  5. Costs: – The one-day course delivered at your premises and irrelevant of attendees is £750 plus reasonable travel and hotel costs (No VAT). The last NHS course I held had 25 attendees so the cost per head is minimal! Printed handouts are included.
