If you are an Authorised or Competent Person MGPS, when did you last attend medical gas training? If it’s three or more years ago then you are probably due to attend refresher training (as required by HTM 02-01) to ensure that you are up to date with the latest legislation and best practice.
Refresher training is just that, designed specifically to support all those working on ‘live’ medical gas pipeline systems stay compliant with the HTM and other key guidance. Eastwood Park is fortunate to have the UK’s only ‘live’ medical gas pipeline system outside of hospitals, giving learners the opportunity to apply their knowledge practically without the worry patient safety or disruption to the busy hospital schedule.
