Point of Care Testing (PoCT)

The team supports the current PoCT commitments, which include blood gas analysers, blood glucose meters, ketone meters and urine test strips which are in use on the wards of the hospital and in the case of hand held meters, also in the community environment. The team also work to increase awareness and compliance with device standards and ensuring these devices are regularly checked for accuracy and precision.
