Meet the Team: Paul Ward

Introducing Paul Ward! Here, in our next of our Meet the Team series, Paul tells us all about his role as a Service Engineer for the North of England and Scotland.

Please tell us a bit about your career history?

I worked for Hill-Rom repairing and servicing therapy beds used in Intensive care and high dependency department.  I then moved to a community role installing and repairing warden call systems and telecare equipment for sheltered housing and vulnerable people.

I then spent three years installing, servicing and repairing X-Ray and Ultrasound systems in hospital A&E, in patients and out patients departments before moving to my current role with DP Medical Systems.

How long have you worked for DP Medical?

I joined DP Medical earlier this year so quite new to the team.

What does a typical day in your role at DP Medical involve?

Starting the day heading to a pre-arranged destination to either service or repair microscopes, endoscope, and colposcope equipment. I enjoy chatting to the staff and answering any questions they have or if they have any other issues before heading home and completing the paperwork.

What’s your favourite part of the job?

I like every part of the job but what I like best is the people that I meet in every NHS hospital and private practice that are always very friendly.

What makes DP Medical stand out from the crowd?

DP Medical cares about everyone, it is a great work environment with a great professional team and this is reflected in the service provided to customers.

When you’re not at work, what do you get up to in your spare time?

I like to produce music and have my own recording studio, I also like to DJ and have professional DJ equipment. I enjoy photography and my 10yr old daughter has taken an interest so we now go out together with our DSLR cameras to photograph landscape and wildlife.

I also cycle as long as there are no Scottish midges about!

And finally, tell us something not everyone knows about you…

I studied to be a meteorologist and did the forecast for my local paper for three years but after having two kids I devoted my spare time to them and stopped the forecasts.
