Optimising restocking of oxygen and Entonox supplies


The Trust is asking staff for assistance in making sure we are as efficient as possible in the processes around restocking of supplies of oxygen and Entonox.

Staff can assist by ensuring the following:  

  • Please be vigilant and return any empty gas cylinders on vehicles and on stations to the gas storage location on site so they can be replaced on a like- for-like basis by BOC. 
  • Please avoid leaving empty gas cylinders at hospitals and ensure they are only returned to EEAST sites. This will allow BOC to replace the full amount of cylinders allocated to EEAST and maximise our own supply. 
  • It is imperative we use oxygen and Entonox safely and efficiently without compromising patient care.
