Ear Academy courses get off to flying start!

Leading medical supplier DP Medical has joined forces with the Ear Academy to deliver some brand new ear care training to audiologists from across the UK.

 

The aural microsuction training course was held at Charing Cross NHS Trust in Greater London, which is associated with the Imperial College.  The two-day course covered an ample amount of theory around aural care as well as practical experience with 102 ears with multiple otological conditions available for the trainees to observe and have hands on involvement with.

 

Dr Mohammed Al-khateeb, consultant audiologist and Ear Care Academy trainer, said: “The courses were an enormous success and we got some great feedback from those who took part particularly around the amount of hands on practice they had on real ears, the theory elements covered, the level of experience the trainers had and the quality of aural care products from DP Medical that were used.

 

“DP Medical added great value to the training course by the level of representation and technical support they had over both  days especially the quality and quantity of microscopes with LCD screens supplied for training and educational purposes. Trainees were really impressed with the SOMRON microscopes especially from those who used other microscope brands in the past. The SOMRON microscopes are cost effective with high quality magnifications, robust handling and manoeuvres and are spot on and fit for purpose if you are planning to set up aural care clinics.”

 

Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical, said: “We were thrilled to partner with Ear Care Academy for their first event.  We found the content and level of interaction with the delegates first class – we are very much looking forward to March’s event.”

 

The next aural microsuction training course is on the 2nd and 3rd of March 2019. Spaces are limited so to book your place please visit www.earcareacademy.co.uk. If you are a cooperate and would like a bespoke arrangement for your staff, please email info@earcareacademy.co.uk and a course organiser will be in touch to discuss.

We were delighted to install some new microscopes at the postgraduate centre at Guy’s Hospital in London recently.

 

Four new A Series Global Dental Microscopes were set up to be used by the department for advanced endodontic treatments including root canal.

 

Douglas Pitman - DP Medical

Doug Pitman from DP Medical, said: “Guys is one of many leading dental schools and hospitals using Global Microscopes which are market leading products. The A Series has the brightest LED illumination of any microscopes available which is a real benefit as it is paramount for deep root canal dentistry.

 

“We were really pleased to work with Guy’s and they were very happy with the microscopes and service we provided.”

In our latest guest blog, Dr. Mohammed Al-khateeb, a Consultant Audiologist who specialises in audio-vestibular sciences, talks to us about the new aural microsuction training course and how DP Medical aural equipment is involved in delivering the training.

 

I am an audiology clinical lead working for a leading independent audio-vestibular provider, where we specialise in delivering audio-vestibular diagnostics and rehabilitations. I oversee training audiologists, ratifying policies, clinical services set up, audiology quality assurance and writing Standard Operating Procedures.

 

DP Medical has professionally supported us by arranging their ENT operating microscopes with LCD screens to deliver appropriate aural microsuction training.  They provided exceptional technical and professional support to our training program and offer special packages for trainees who complete our training course and ready to set up their own aural microsuction clinics and they are also excellent at providing long term and on-going support. 

 

Our ambition has always been to disseminate our knowledge to other clinicians and as such, we have created the UK’s first fully accredited Ear Care and Microsuction Course under our new training branch – Ear Care Academy.

 

Our course is delivered on real patients and offers closely supervised hands-on experience over an intensive two days training at Charing Cross Hospital.  DP Medical kindly provide ENT microscopes for our course to enable trainees to experience the equipment they might use in their own practices.  We feel their equipment provides an excellent combination of quality, functionality and value for money and it’s been great to build a successful relationship with them.

Partnership with Ear Care Lab grows

In our latest guest blog, Alex Fragoyannis, a GP in Ealing who specialises in ENT, tells us more about a dedicated service he has set up and how DP Medical is involved.

 

I am a GP partner in Corfton Road Surgery in Ealing and have had a specialist interest in ENT Medicine since before qualifying as a GP in 2006.  

 

 

I have informally been performing ear microsuction for several years but two years ago I decided to set up a dedicated ear microsuction service – Ear Care Lab. This was in order to fulfil a growing demand for microsuction from patients not registered with our practice.  Another reason for setting up this dedicated service was to help reduce onward hospital referrals for microsuction to already over-pressured ENT departments.

 

DP Medical supported us by visiting our clinic and explaining the requirements of a full microsuction setup from consumables (tubing, suction probes), to suction devices and ENT microscopes.  They provided exceptionally good package prices for these items and we use all their equipment including the excellent SOMRON ENT microscope on a daily basis.

Our ambition has always been to disseminate our knowledge to other clinicians and as such, we have created the UK’s first fully accredited Ear Care and Microsuction Course under our new training branch – Ear Care Academy.

 

Our course is delivered on real patients and offers closely supervised hands-on experience over an intensive two days training at Charing Cross Hospital. DP Medical kindly provide ENT microscopes and suction equipment for our course and enable delegates to experience the equipment they might use in their own practices.

 

We feel their equipment provides an excellent combination of quality, functionality and value for money and it’s been great to build a really successful relationship with them.

In our latest blog, DP Medical’s Northern England & Scotland area manager of the medical division, Rob Hampson looks forward to the Newcastle Voice Conference.

 

The 14th Newcastle Voice Conference will take place at the Royal Victoria Infirmary from 13-14 November 2018, and is an event we are very proud to be able to sponsor.

 

The conference is specially designed for professionals such as speech and language therapists (SLT) and laryngologists covering areas such as disorders associated with the voice and upper airways. This year the main theme of the conference is ‘The Extended Scope of the Voice Practitioner’.

 

Topics will include the use of endoscopy in an SLT outpatient setting, office based surgical treatment of vocal cord palsy, laryngeal nerve re-innervation, management of chronic cough and inducible laryngeal obstruction, voice therapy post-phonosurgery, voice treatment options post laryngeal cancer, tele-therapy and paediatric voice therapy.

 

The 2018 conference’s international keynote speaker will be Dr Anne Vertigan from New South Wales, Australia, who says her dream is to find a cure for chronic cough or even to stop it occurring in the first place.

 

This is a wonderful and wide-reaching event which we are delighted to be at the forefront of and we are very excited to be there showcasing our entire range of Xion Video endoscopy equipment, specifically designed for ENT/FEES and Stroboscopy Clinics.

 

These will include two EndoCompact systems, an EndoPortable system, an EndoStrobe system and an Endostrobe HD system.

DP Medical gets set for BACO International

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

BACO International is one of the most prestigious dates in the ENT calendar. Taking place in Manchester from 4-6 July, the conference provides a great chance for people from across the industry to join forces and discuss the latest developments for both medical professionals and patients. Our team from DP Medical will of course be in attendance and here, in his latest blog, MD Rob Atkinson explains why he’s looking forward to the event:

 

BACO International is an event we always look forward to here at DP Medical. As a business we specialise in all areas of ENT and have a wealth of experience in this field, so it’s always great to mingle with others in the industry who’ve come to attend the event from across the globe.

 

With an array of national and international speakers the meeting includes various sessions across all aspects of ENT and attracts a huge number of delegates. All of our Sales team will be in attendance and we are preparing for a busy few days!

 

We will have various products on our stand this year, demonstrating our expertise and the great range of world-class suppliers we work exclusively with.

 

Leading the way will be our XION range which will include the EndoFLEX and EndoPORTABLE.

 

Both of these systems have become extremely popular within the FEES (Flexible Endoscopic Examinations of Swallowing) sector over the last 18 months.

 

Alongside these we will also have our EndoSTROB PL – a highly specialized HD stroboscopy system complete with PIET(Professional Image Enhanced Technology).

 

And, of course, our 3D/4K Surgery Stack, incorporating the award winning Matrix Spectar Camera processor.

 

In addition to the XION range we will have our KAPS Microscopes and Futurent Treatment Units on show, both of which have been a mainstay of the DP portfolio for a number of years.

 

We’re really excited to be heading to BACO International again and to showcasing our range to ENT professionals from across the globe.

 

You can find us on stand I30 – I33, so come and say hello. We’d love to meet you!

Owen hits the road for CLEFT!

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

This summer DP Medical’s Owen Pemberton will take part in the Prudential RideLondon cycling event, taking on the 100 mile course to raise money for the charity CLEFT.

 

Owen is supporting CLEFT after working with Great Ormond Street Hospital and key consultants including Honorary Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Brian Sommerlad who is also the Chair of CLEFT, through his role with DP Medical.

 

A cleft is a birth defect which can leave children suffering from speech and hearing problems. There may be a cleft (split) just of the lip, just of the palate, or both. They can be one-sided (unilateral) or double-sided (bilateral).

 

Owen said: “I became aware of the charity through my work and learned of the worthwhile projects that CLEFT run throughout the world.

 

“Having had the benefit of meeting some of the amazing consultants, such as Brian, who donate their own time and expertise to help those who don’t have access to the medical care for their conditions, I felt empowered to help raise funds for these projects.

 

 “The charity has run recent trips to Bangladesh, Uganda, Sri Lanka and Egypt where they have helped countless children – and have set themselves a target of raising £275,000 for an MRI scanner.”

 

This is why he has decided to take on the gruelling 100 mile cycling challenge, with the aim of raising £1,000 for the cause.

 

On Sunday 29 July Owen, along with a few other riders supporting the same charity, will set off from London’s Olympic Park and follow much of the same route that the likes of Bradley Wiggins, Lizzie Deignan and Mark Cavendish tackled during London 2012.

 

He will head out into the punishing Surrey hills before coming back into London for a grand finish on the Mall.

 

Owen added: “I have completed a few bike rides in the past but this will be by far the furthest I have cycled in one day.

 

“Any donations no matter how small will be greatly appreciated and will keep those legs pedalling along.”

 

Brian Sommerlad, chairman of CLEFT and plastic surgeon, said: “I am delighted that Owen is cycling Ride London for CLEFT. I wish him well in the event and in reaching his target of raising £1,000 for the charity. This will benefit children born with clefts in many parts of the world.”

 

DP Medical has supported CLEFT on its trips overseas, including earlier this year by providing an endoscope at a reduced price which has enabled a team in Bangladesh to investigate the palate function of patients whose speech is unsatisfactory.

 

We offer Owen our full support during his challenge! And you can donate to the cause here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?pageId=927447

 

 


Carl joins growing team

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

Here at DP Medical we are celebrating even further growth with the appointment of Carl Seabrook as our new warehouse manager. In this latest blog, Carl gives us the lowdown on his new role.

 

“I have worked most of my career in stores, warehouse and logistics. My previous job was with a bespoke sauna and steam company where I was responsible for taking in and sending out customer orders, checking for damages, storage of goods, stock control and overseeing staff.

 

“My DP Medical role is very much the same but the big difference about my new position is that I get to set up the equipment and actually see how it all works. I find this absolutely fascinating and it is definitely the most enjoyable part of the job rather than just looking at a storage box all the time!  

 

“Looking ahead I would like to go on a few installations so I can see the job completed from start to finish and get to know more about all the products from a technical perspective.

 

“I have been really impressed with DP Medical as a company. The best thing I have found so far are the people I work with on a day-to-day basis. I have had so much support and couldn’t have asked to meet such a lovely helpful group of colleagues who have made me feel so welcome.

 

“I’m looking forward to what the future brings for my career at DP Medical.”
