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
us for further advice when considering a new POCT service.
