I was booked onto the Care and Maintenance of Flexible Endoscopes as, in my capacity of Sterile Services Deputy Manager I prepare for the centralisation of decontamination. The course provided me with enough information to underpin the theory of what I had already learned to help me understand everything from the endoscope functionality to troubleshooting problems. I have begun to embed my learning in to my workplace seeing the whole process with ‘new eyes’. This course is a must for all sterile services staff embarking on the centralisation of decontamination.
