What is a Sterile Services Technician?
Sterile Services Technicians ensure that all reusable medical and surgical instruments from wards, clinics or theatres are clean and sterile for reuse during patient procedures.
A CSSD technician (Central Sterile Services Department) will collect, disassemble, disinfect and reassemble medical equipment, which is then delivered back to the appropriate department within the hospital.
The instruments sterilised within the CSSD include:
- Scalpel handles
- Artery forceps
- Orthopaedic drills
- Dental instruments
- Medical devices used in surgery
Sterilization NHS jobs may also include the restocking of items such as dressings, needles and syringe supplies.
As sterile services jobs involve the sterilisation of surgical instruments, it is essential that CSSD Technicians have strong attention to detail and can be quick as well as precise during decontamination.
What Does a Sterile Service Technician Earn?
Sterile Services Technicians can expect to earn between £15,250 and £18,000 at the start of their career. On gaining more experience, they have the potential to earn up to £22,500.
Sterile Services roles tend to be shift-based, which means that technicians could work any time of the 24hour day, on any day of the week. This style of working appeals to those who prefer a more flexible schedule.
