Hi,
We are a group of Marketing MSc students from Oxford Brookes University carrying out some exploratory research for the company who specialize in high-tech medical equipment transportation.
We are interested in the second-hand market for such machines, especially MRI, CT and X-Ray scanners. As a group we have no experience or knowledge in this field so would very much appreciate if anybody would be able to offer us any information or point us towards any further sources of information. We would like to find out about second-hand brokers or buyers in this area, and if there is any interest in the purchasing of used machines.
As we lack knowledge in the medical field, we do not fully understand the buying process as it exists within a hospital/medical department and so would be very very grateful if anybody would be able to enlighten us as to who is responsible for buying decisions in such environments.
Many thanks,
Oxford Brookes students

You could do worse than having a chat with Mike Hilditch. smile

And then, if you really want to educate yourselves, go along to the next auction (Tuesday, 8th of March).

Have a read of
DB2006 Managing Medical Devices - Guidance for healthcare and social services organisations
on the MHRA web site.
Section 10 is "Removal from Service". The official guidance on what to do and how to do it is in there.

My spelling is not bad. I am typing this on a Medigenic keyboard and I blame that for all my typos.

For MRI, CT, etc. you are better off looking at Lundy or Lupprians instead of Hilditch

Occasionally stuff goes through the MOD eDisposals route.
If there is not any medical equipment you could always get a Type 42 Destroyer to play with in the bath.
DSA Connect is a more likely route though.

And just for fun there is always Witham Specialist Vehicles I would like to see some of these being clamped.

Clear your own parking space

And for the price of a secondhand car Worth it just for the look on a clampers face.

But as an ex-FV-432 man myself ... I can't help but wonder what that "accessory" is (along the top, towards the rear).

I also notice the lack of the famous "floatation screen". Anyone else remember the "dunking pond" at Sennelager?

The smoke dischargers are also missing, so I'm guessing that the vehicle shown is a "special" of some kind (and therefore, perhaps, rare).

Probably not an FV-432 at all, but one of the (many) variants. smile
