Directorates / Technical Service

   

BACKGROUND

Technical Services Directorate is a Non-Clinical Directorate rendering strategic support
services to all the Directorates in the hospital.  Hitherto, the set-up was known as the
“Maintenance” Unit; a name derived from the basic function of the Unit.

With growing functions, responsibilities and increase in capacity of the set-up, it was
elevated to the status of a Directorate.  The set-up was therefore organized into two main
blocks, namely Biomedical Engineering and Estates. Heads of these two main blocks, the Head
of the Directorate, the Business Manager and the Accountant constituted the five management
team tasked to nurture the then newly formed Directorate.  Two Units has recently been added  
to the Directorate; namely, Mechanical and Environmental.   The team had since managed the
setup, making every effort to meet the overwhelming demands on the Directorate.

 
HEAD OF DIRECTORATE

As a dynamic set-up, management re-organized the Directorate, aimed at ensuring efficiency
 and effectiveness in the performance of its duties. 
The Directorate was therefore restructured into five main blocks namely, Biomedical
Engineering, Estate Management, Plants and Machinery, Environmental Health and Administration.

The mission of the Directorate is to provide effective and efficient maintenance support
to the physical infrastructure, equipment and plant; service installations and
Rational Acquisition of equipment, plant and infrastructure.
