The panel

Dave Sambrook

Senior Technical Services Engineer

My career has been built on vocational learning rather than university study. I started my engineering career as an
apprentice electrician at the hospital. From there I moved into biomedical engineering, working on medical equipment and going to college part time.

Now I work in Technical Services, which are part of Medical Physics. My role is to look after the medical linear particle accelerators or Linacs for short. They are used in oncology to deliver radiotherapy to cancerous cells. This involves a large amount of electrical and mechanical engineering, and radiation safety.

We also provide any other miscellaneous engineering support as required. This has seen the department working on sensory equipment for paediatric care, modification of equipment, as well as research and development. Part of this research and development has been to integrate 3D printing techniques for the surgical and oncology teams.

Currently I am researching and developing cheap 3D printed powered prosthetics.

Aaron Wild

MEL team leader (medical equipment library)

The job role of the medical equipment library assistant is to insure the library is stocked with medical devices and are available to the clinical teams. All devices are cleaned, tested and stored accordingly within the library. Delivery of these stored devices are made when clinical staff requests them and then delivered. This insures equipment is in the right place at the right time. The library assistant also helps to ensure all medical devices are in good working order around the hospital but bring devices back for annual servicing on time. This ensures the devices are usable and safe. This job then could lead me to a higher career in the engineering industry due to the great knowledge of the equipment I am working with.
