Friends & colleagues

I would like to personally to thank thank you all, those medical/clinical engineers who work tirelessly and professionally whilst playing a vital role in the face of many challenges in healthcare. It has been my pleasure and privilege to be part of the EBME community.

Mainly providing support services, often seen as backroom staff, we just get on with it, recently though, we have seen a raising of our profile and a wider acknowledgement of our contribution, not before time and certainly deserved.

It reminds me of a story:-

Back in the day, when in the RAF, I was a biomed working in MDSS at RAF Hospital Halton, we had to wear white doctors coats then. Working in outpatients a gentleman approached a colleague asked if he was the Doctor, he answered "no, I'm just the engineer"

A little old lady, obviously hearing the conversation later approached my colleague and said "young man, never describe yourself as just an engineer, if it wasn't for engineers, most people here wouldn't be able to do their job, you are an engineer, be proud of it!"

Apparently, the lady was married to an engineer!

I never forgot this - and who are we to argue with the lady?

So, in the spirit of her advice, it is quite right that we set aside aside a day to appreciate and celebrate who we are and recognise the contribution we make.

Happy Global Clinical Engineering day!

Completely Agree Darren.
We have been 'in the shadows' doing an increasingly important job, and as digitisation and connectivity is driven forward, we will be vital to the organisations we work for, and hopefully play an important role in the digital transformation.https://www.england.nhs.uk/digitaltechnology/
