Information and Requisitions
Sterile Services Order Requisition Form
Please note: Some customers are experiencing a problem placing electronic orders. When the “Email Order” button is clicked, the order is not attaching itself properly to an email. This appears to be a problem for those using the NHS Net email system rather than those using Outlook etc. While this problem is being investigated, you have two other options. You can save the order to your computer, open your email account and send it as an attachment to email@example.com.
18th March 2008 We appear to be getting an increasing number of single-use stainless steel instruments being returned to us for reprocessing. Please note that if an instrument is marked as “single use“, or if it has a symbol depicting a ‘2‘ with a line through it , it must be disposed of at the point of use and not be returned to the SSD.
5th March 2008 In spite of inflationary pressures, the prices of instrument packs and consumable items ordered from the Sterile Services Department (SSD) have remained constant since 2005. Continuing improvements in purchasing agreements with our key suppliers have allowed us to maintain prices at this competitive level. I am pleased to say that the majority of packs will continue to be supplied at 2005 prices during 2008. However, a small number of instrument packs will be increasing in price from 1st April 2008 to reflect increases in processing and instrument costs. The new price list is being sent out with all orders being currently dispatched and the order form linked from the button above will be updated for 1st April 2008. I hope that we may continue to provide a service to you throughout during 2008/2009.
