Decontamination Unit - opened 2010

Work is now complete on the flagship central decontamination unit, which sits adjacent to the endoscopy suite, for the re-processing of flexible endoscopes. The stunning new facility began operating in 2010 and will treat all endoscopes used in St John’s – a total of around 12,000 each year. It is the now the most modern unit providing the highest standard of decontamination facilities in Scotland. Other health boards are looking at this unit as an example of excellence.
