POCT policy

The CMFT POCT Policy describes the role and responsibilities of the Trust, POCT Team and POCT Operators in the implementation and daily use of POCT devices.

A POCT Proposal Form is appended to the Policy of POCT. This must be completed and submitted to the POCT Committee before a device is purchased.

The POCT Proposal Form itemises the governance and resource implications of introducing a POCT device. Vendors of POCT devices may omit to detail all the associated costs of introducing a POCT service, for example, External Quality Assurance registration and IT licences.

Please contact us for further advice when considering a new POCT service.
