In Saudi, we had a biomed permanently based in the OR working from a satellite workshop. It proved to be well worth it as he was able to oversee the performance of the kit and rectify any problems before they became a significant issue. Also, from a PR view, it proved to be a winner as the theatre staff were happy that we dedicated resources to then and could respond to any problems immediately. I would always advocate for the provision of such satellite workshops within a new or existing facility.
