Medical equipment service & repairs
DNS Engineering is available to help you to maintain your equipment and to comply with health and safety law.
Our qualified engineers will inspect, service and repair items, including hoists, beds, sluice machines, autoclaves and ECG machines. We also calibrate measuring devices such as blood pressure monitors and scales. Much of the work can be carried out on site (Dorset and much of Hampshire only - other areas, please enquire) or, if necessary, repairs can be carried out at the Wickham Road workshop.
Additionally, DNS Engineering offers PAT testing to ensure that all your electrically operated devices comply with relevant legislation. PAT testing is available nationwide.
