CSSD attain IDSC


The Trust recently provided support for Ildiko Danyiova, Sharon McCabe and Stephen McCann to become the first candidates in SEHSCT Central Sterile Supplies Department to attain the Institute of Decontamination Sciences Technical Certificate (IDSC).

Jennifer Close, CSSD Service manager (chartered member of IDSC) mentored the staff through the year long study into the technical aspects of decontamination processes after which they had to submit a workbook and sit an exam invigilated by an independent Chartered member of the IDSc.

The IDSc is the UK’s biggest professional body for medical device reprocessing whose aim is to ensure Professional Education, Standards & Progress by supporting the growth and evolution of decontamination sciences in the UK through a respected and renowned education and training programme, monitoring and maintaining professional standards and actively promoting continuous research and development.

Congratulations to the CSSD staff!
