Well after all the excitement of the Royal visit has died down, back to the everyday events at the dental dept. of the Polyclinic and the daily duties treating the Olympic teams.
We have an interesting set up where trolleys can be wheeled in and out as c required, everything is centrally sterilised on site and bagged, all the units are working quite well so far, being both left and right handed.
These games also have a sustainability and recycling emphasis and I really like the idea of the recycle bins we have in each Surgery as well as the clinical waste receptacles too :)
However judging by the thick cable bolted to the floor for the computer system, I'm guessing that is one item they don't want 'recycled' through the wrong hands too early!
