From time to time it will be necessary for patients to loan equipment from the Surgery as advised by their doctor.
Upon receipt of a request for an item of equipment to be loaned, the Receptionist will:
Confirm the item is available and indicate that it is to be loaned on a short term basis only (ie. one week or less)
The terms of the loan will be explained to the patient
An equipment loan form will be completed by the Receptionist giving the related serial number of the equipment, a deposit of £5.00 collected and a receipt issued
The patient will be required to sign the appropriate loan form as evidence that the equipment has been taken from the Surgery
On returning the equipment, the Receptionist will:
The equipment will be checked for any damage which was not noted when it was issued and verify that it is complete
The receptionist will complete the return details on the Loan Agreement Form
If the equipment is returned in the same condition and within the agreed loan period, then the full deposit amount will be returned to the patient
