Items selected are based on four main criteria:

  • Health and safety of staff and patients
  • Replacing equipment that is at its end of life
  • New equipment and technology, including add-ons, to augment existing equipment
  • Availability of existing funds and ability to raise additional funds to purchase the needed equipment
