Medidex - the Medical Device Index
The site acts as a repository of information on medical devices from SMTL. The information may have been generated as:
- Work undertaken for Welsh NHS procurement processes in conjunction with Procurement Services (formally Welsh Health Supplies). This would typically include test reports of medical devices or our medical device datacards;
- Work undertaken for the Welsh NHS as part of SMTL's R&D remit. Examples of this would include work on single use screws and plates;
- Work undertaken on a commercial basis for medical device manufacturers and suppliers. This includes test reports for products tested at SMTL.
- Work undertaken for the Evidence Based Procurement Board (EBPB) - usually reviews of the published literatire
