DP Medical has installed some vital endoscopy equipment for use by the speech and language therapy (SLT) team at St Mary’s Hospital in London which is managed by Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
The XION EndoFLEX, a mobile endoscopy unit for ENT, provides innovative and convenient technology for optimal diagnostics and therapeutics. The new digital device enables the processing and archiving of picture, video and many diverse digital data, being constantly updatable.
The stack unit can serve as a standalone or be integrated into the existing office facilities. It is also easily manoeuvrable making it ideal for swallowing diagnostics applications anywhere in the hospital.
The SLT team were over the moon to receive the equipment which will have an immediate and significant impact on all aspects of the service improving patient care, efficient service delivery, staff learning and development, MDT working, quality improvement and research projects.
Lee Bolton, lead speech and language therapist at St Mary’s Hospital, said: “We were very excited to take receipt of this long-awaited, brand new FEES system for providing endoscopic swallowing evaluations to patients with dysphagia. This replaces the current equipment which was very old and no longer fit for purpose. The new equipment purchase was kept as a complete surprise with delivery timed to take place just before Christmas, so there were smiles all round when it was delivered to the office and the team received their training.”
Owen Pemberton, commercial director for DP Medical, said: “We were so pleased to bring some early festive cheer and drop off the XION equipment to the team at St Mary’s! They were delighted to receive it and enjoyed the training so they are ready to go which will only be of benefit to their many ENT patients.”
DP Medical Systems Ltd, the leading medical supplies company, has announced it has launched a new company dedicated to the Irish market.
DP Medical Systems Ireland Ltd, which is based in Dublin, provides ENT, gynaecology and forensic medical equipment to the HSE and private health centres.
The UK firm, which has its head office in Chessington, Surrey and has also recently opened a second office in Stockport, Greater Manchester, enjoyed a record high turnover in 2018 as well as recording double digit growth for the third consecutive year. Each division of the company; dental, hospital and service, has grown substantially and the business has exciting future plans including growing their existing market share within Ireland.
DP Medical Ireland, which has recently won contracts at Mater Hospital, Dublin and Mayo Hospital in Castlebar, will be led by DP Medical commercial director, Owen Pemberton, with Thomas Cryan, who is already permanently based in Ireland, as sales and service representative.
Owen Pemberton, commercial director of DP Medical, said: “Having served our Irish customer base for a number of years with regular flights back and forth from London, I have seen the potential first-hand and we really felt it was a market we wanted to invest in further.
“By establishing an Irish company, with Thomas based in Dublin and covering both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, we are ensuring we continue to enhance our sales and service coverage to our Irish customer base and seek out further opportunities so we can continue to grow and develop.
“This is a really exciting time for us as we look to deliver our ambitious growth strategy and establish ourselves as a leading healthcare supplies company in the UK, Ireland and beyond.”
Thomas Cryan said: “Here at DP Medical, we offer top quality medical equipment and have a real enthusiasm and passion for providing the highest levels of customer care.
“I am excited about our new venture and looking forward to improving the customer experience within Ireland, offering greater levels of support as well as building valued relationships with our clients, both old and new. We really feel it is the right time to invest and focus our commitments further in Ireland.”
Leading UK healthcare supplies firm, DP Medical, has provided state-of-the-art forensic examination equipment in the UAE, a first for the middle eastern country.
DP Medical, which has its HQ in Surrey, has now installed its MediScan software and HD video Colposcope in RAK Police GHQ, Ras Al Khaimah to further develop the ability of officials in UAE to record and document sexual assault and abuse.
MediScan, a product developed by DP Medical, provides clinicians with a secure pathway for recording, storing and encrypting patient gynaecology examinations for analysis and archiving. The still images and video are captured in real-time and stored against the patient record for retrieval anywhere in the hospital.
The Video Colposcope is an advanced high resolution video camera with integrated high intensity LED illumination. The equipment provides a compact stand-alone solution for true video and still images in the forensic gynaecological field.
Owen Pemberton, commercial director for DP Medical who oversaw the project from start to finish, said: “The completion of this project is a great achievement for all involved and we hope that this flagship installation will be the start of many new opportunities to come in the UAE and wider Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for DP Medical.
“MediScan has enjoyed a large market share within the UK and Ireland for the purpose of forensic and legal documentation, it’s great to see it is now also the choice for global professionals within this field too.”
Leading medical supplier DP Medical has announced a new deal with NHS Supply Chain in the Large Diagnostic Capital Equipment tower.
A new order has been placed with DP Medical for a number of SOM52 5 step LED Colposcopes and SOM62 LED Microscopex, offering NHS Trusts a further discount of 10% on their purchases.
This is the third order NHS Supply Chain has placed with DP Medical in the last three years.
Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical, said: “This deal allows NHS Supply Chain to offer our scopes to all NHS trusts at a discounted rate with immediate delivery. This helps hospitals, not only make cost savings, but also saves time, as they can have the scopes installed immediately, as opposed to an average six to eight-week lead time.

We are the sole UK distributer for Kaps and offer a fully equipped sales and service team who can provide all ongoing support and training, as well as an excellent level of maintenance.

DP Medical has helped make sure a team of doctors were looking the part when they went on a recent golf tour.
A group of GPs and ENT doctors and consultants from Berkshire went to Turkey on the golf tour and DP Medical offered support, in conjunction with Halbro Sportswear, by providing some top quality shirts and hats for the players to wear.
Mr Rogan Corbridge, consultant ENT surgeon who went on the trip, said: “This year we once again went to Turkey and stayed at the Maxx Royal, playing golf at the Montgomery where the Turkish Open is being held now and the Carya and Lykia links.
“We had another great tour despite the Thomas Cook collapse and a last minute rearrangement of our flights! It’s a great opportunity for us all to take a step out of clinical practice and invest in a bit of fellowship. We are extremely grateful to DP Medical for their continued and generous sponsorship for the shirts and hats.”
Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical, said: “We were really pleased to be able to provide sponsorship for this trip. These doctors do an amazing job everyday and we wanted to be able show our thanks for the work they do by providing these tops and hats for them to wear. We’re pleased they all had an enjoyable time.”
The latest winner of our customer survey prize draw has taken home a brand new FitBit Charge 2.
Rob Hampson, northern England & Scotland area manager, said: “Feedback from our customers plays a vital part in making sure we continue to deliver excellence across all areas
of our business, from product supply and development to servicing visits.
“On behalf of DP Medical, I’d like to thank Louise for her contribution. I was delighted to deliver the prize to her at work and we hope she enjoys using it!”
One of the newest additions to the DP Medical team has just come back from some important training in Germany. Jonathan Peters, area manager for south Wales and southwest England, visited our trusted partner Karl Kaps GmbH & Co. which specialises in the development and manufacture of modern surgical and diagnostic microscopes. Here, in our latest blog, Jonathan gives us the lowdown on his trip.
Obviously, when starting a new job it’s always a steep learning curve at the beginning so I was really excited when I found out that I would be visiting Germany to learn as much as possible about our KAPS range. The high-end products are used all over the world in ENT, ophthalmology, microsurgery, endodontics and gynaecology and, as a company, we are extremely proud to supply them to our customers. We get excellent feedback on the range so I really wanted to find out more.
Myself and DP Medical’s commercial director, Owen Pemberton, flew into Frankfurt airport and then took a 45 min drive to stay in Wetzlar where KAPS has its head office.
We arrived late in the afternoon and were taken on a fascinating tour around Wetzlar where we learnt about the history of the city and how famous the optic industry is there.
The next day, I underwent product training with Owen and Mark Reinhard, international sales manager at KAPS, where I learnt in more detail about the KAPS ENT and colposcopy product ranges. During the training we took a tour of the factory and found out how valuable everyone’s role is and how they produce the technology.
This was really eye opening for me. I think it’s important for sales teams to understand the care and attention to detail that goes into making products and the factory tour helped me understand how much of a team effort it is to get a product to market and, subsequently, enable medical professionals to carry out their day-to-day work.
Mark was excellent at giving us an understanding at how important every component is in the scopes they produce and how this affects the quality of the product. The manufacturing process was great to see at first hand and it was amazing to get a glimpse into how the engineers work and the attention to detail that goes into every product.
I’d like to thank Mark for taking the time out of his busy schedule to meet with me. By having the chance to take part in a personalised and tailored training in a one to one environment, showed that both DP and KAPS value myself as an employee and the contributions I can make moving forward in my role. This input into my development has definitely helped motivate me to do my very best for both companies.

Leading healthcare supplies company, DP Medical Systems, has announced its expansion with the opening of a second UK office.
The firm, which has its head office in Chessington, Surrey, has now established a base in Stockport, Greater Manchester.
The new office will be home to at least four permanent members of staff and a dedicated workshop so any repairs can be conducted on site removing the need for them to always be sent to the Surrey base.
The news comes off the back of recent additions to the DP Medical team including to the software department, sales team, a sales and service rep in Ireland and a new service and contracts manager.
Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical Systems, said: “In 2018 we enjoyed a record high turnover as well as recording double digit growth for the third consecutive year. Each division of the company, dental, hospital and services, has also grown substantially and we don’t plan on stopping there so creating another hub in the UK is an essential part of our growth forecasts.
“We are really pleased to be opening our new office in Stockport which will give us another option when it comes to where staff can be based from and improve the customer experience for those based away from the south of England. This decision really reflects the growth and development we have experienced across the UK, as well as in Ireland, recently.”
“We’ve also welcomed a number of new people to our team recently and are particularly excited about expanding the service side of business with the appointment of Jacqui McKenzie as our new service and contracts manager. She will be working to develop our service division which is a key focus for our business in 2020 as we look to offer more extensive packages to the healthcare sector with regard to the servicing and maintenance of vital hospital equipment.
“DP Medical Systems sells ENT, dental, gynaecology and forensic medical equipment to the NHS and private users.
