Clinical Engineering (North) Best Value Group
The Clinical Engineering North group was formed in July 2000, after it was recognised that the Controls Assurance process identified the advantage of being a member of such clubs.
Today, the Clinical Engineering North Group is an expert group of professionals, assisting clinical engineering managers in the continuous improvement of their services.
An important aspect of the group’s meetings is sharing data to benchmark performance. To facilitate benchmarking, the group has developed a number of KPIs. These KPIs enable members to monitor their department’s individual performance and provide a means to monitor continuous performance.

In an unprecedented year for Healthcare and its medical and technical challenges, the support and instant access to the very latest information from the NPAG Clinical Engineering best practice group has again been an invaluable resource to my department and the organisation.
Membership has proven invaluable as it enables a proactive response to problems that are common across many Trusts through open forum discussion. This has never been more evident than over the last 12 months.
I have found that the NPAG benchmarking group is a fantastic way to network and also to review and discuss issues to make improvements in my own organisation. Also I have found that the information sharing has ensured that I can make improvements in patients safety, compliance to standards, service supply issues. It has also been useful to discuss with suppliers their presentations on new products and services and to also highlight common issues that we all face and look to influence suppliers to improve their service provision. Thoroughly recommend being a member.
NPAG CE South Group is a great avenue for Medical Engineers from various NHS Trusts to network, benchmark and share information. I have been an active member for many years and have found this group to be very well facilitated and productive.
The opportunity to network with fellow Medical Engineers allows us to discuss our common problems and opportunities. Benchmarking is now recognised as an important factor to anyone that is involved in the management of medical equipment.
I have used our NPAG data on a number of occasions to influence decisions and policy.
The One Drive share drive facility allows me at access valuable information anytime I need to. Thank You NPAG!
