As respected and recognised long-standing independent Consultants for the Management of Legionella and Water Quality, Hydrop are considered to be qualified to the highest standard and can be appropriately appointed by healthcare organisations as the Authorising Engineer (AE) – Water.
"The AE will act as an independent professional adviser to the healthcare organisation. The AE should be appointed by the organisation with a brief to provide services in accordance with health technical memoranda guidance. This may vary in accordance with the specialist service being supported.
"The AE will act as assessor and make recommendations for the appointment of authorised persons, monitor the performance of the service, and provide an annual audit to the Designated Person. To carry out this role effectively, particularly with regard to audit, it is preferable that the AE remains independent of the operational structure of the trust." Health Technical Memorandum 00 - Policies and principles of healthcare engineering
Healthcare organisations can therefore enter into contractual agreements with our qualified and accredited independent, professional Consultants to assist them to discharge their relevant guidance obligations in this matter. In entering into such agreements, healthcare organisations must ensure that the proposed nominated AE is suitably trained, experienced and qualified.
