Partnership with Ear Care Lab grows

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

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.

 

We are really looking forward to meeting as many people as possible and showcasing our involvement in this great event and how our products can help.

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!

 


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.”

This week our team will be appearing at the prestigious British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show at the NEC in Birmingham. DP Medical’s Darren Young, UK dental business manager, discusses our work in the dentistry field and what DP Medical’s focus will be during the event.

 

At DP Medical we are proud to be at the cutting edge of dentistry technology, supplying the latest and best innovations to our loyal customers.

 

I feel privileged to bring over 12 years of experience to this team and I believe that we truly live up to our name in this field as one of the UK’s leading medical suppliers. We offer a range of dental microscopy products which enable practitioners across the industry to achieve better results from even the most demanding procedures.

Darren Young - DP Medical

 

Last year we decided to focus on advanced systems of magnification as developments in this market have come on hugely in recent times.

 

Our partners Global Surgical Corporation are at the very forefront of these developments. The Global A Series microscope has been designed with intuitive control in mind. It also significantly improves visualisation for earlier diagnosis, setting a new standard in dental microscopy.

 

With more mounting options than any other brand and the brightest LED light source available, Global Surgical Corporation’s product has become the number one selling dental operating microscope in the UK.

 

We are thrilled to be showcasing these and our other dentistry products at such an important event as the Dentistry Show this weekend on 18  and 19 May 2018.

 

We will be at stand B67 so come along if you are interested in working with DP Medical Systems and see all of this for yourself!


Guest blog: DP Medical and XION join forces at ERS2018

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

This week our team have been appearing at the European Rhinologic Society Congress 2018 (ERS2018) in London alongside our partners XION Medical. Here, Michael Panschar – Sales Director at XION – talks about working with DP Medical and their joint appearance at the event, which took place from 22-26 April.

 

At XION Medical we chose to partner with DP Medical Systems Ltd because of its reputation as one of the leading medical suppliers in the UK and because of their extensive experience in the field, collected over 30 years in the supply industry.

 

The company is well-known for its high-quality products and its outstanding customer service too.

 

That’s why it is so great to be appearing alongside a company held in the esteem that DP Medical is, at such a prestigious event as the ERS2018.

 

When we first joined forces I said I was excited to build more effective routes to market in the UK and to showcase our products to healthcare providers across the country, and that is exactly what we’re doing here.

 

At XION Medical we are in the vanguard of technology in the Rhinology market, for minimally-invasive diagnostics and therapy for all endoscopic applications, thanks to our award winning developments.

 

In 2016, the Matrix Spectar Camera Platform – a unique camera system configured to work with HD, 4K, 2D and 3D camera heads, as well as video endoscopes – was recognised at the ‘Innovation Awards Brandenburg/Berlin.’

 

All the features required for outpatient examinations and procedures, such as Endoscopic skull/sinus based surgery, are provided by this imaging system.

 

In turn, this provides the end user with a variety of imaging options – all of the very highest quality.

 

DP Medical are also distributing the DIVAS documentation system which we have developed, which works across all of our Stack systems. This software platform allows the hospital to securely store patient information, records and evaluates and archives diverse diagnosis and therapy data, allowing doctors to focus on the patients and provide the highest standards of care.

 

We’ve been very excited to be stood alongside DP Medical at the ERS2018 this week and we look forward to continuing to showcase our partnership with them at other industry events and exhibitions in the coming weeks and months.

Andrew Tasker joins dental division

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

We are delighted to announce the growth of our dental division with the appointment of Andrew Tasker as Dental Area Manager for Northern England, Scotland and Wales. In our latest blog, Andrew tells us about developing his knowledge of dentistry at DP Medical and what his family think of his new role.

 

“I actually studied to become a secondary school teacher at University, before rethinking my career options and getting a role with PepsiCo, first in supply chain and then in sales.

 

“However, I had always been really keen to move into a more clinical based sales role but only for the right company. I’d been approached by other organisations before but when the opportunity with DP Medical came up I just knew it was for me, especially as they are such a well thought of and established company.

 

“My new role as Dental Area Manager means that I liaise with some existing, as well as lots of new, clients to help them trial and choose from our dental microscope range and identify what’s suitable for their practice. I also suppo

rt the company at dental schools, exhibitions and trade shows. I’m already really enjoying the role and love meeting new people and clients regularly. I’m excited about getting out seeing the dentists I will be working with and developing my knowledge of dentistry.

 

“One of the best aspects so far has been actually going to see how our famous dental microscopes are made at the Global Surgical Corporation’s headquarters in St Louis, Missouri. You really get to appreciate the effort and attention that goes into each one, and I met some great people from all around the world. That has definitely been the highlight so far!

 

“My wife, Rachel, and children, Noah, Max and Hallie, are all really proud that I’m working in such an innovative industry and helping dentists to do their job! I think they can already see that I’m really enjoying my working life here.

 

“I do feel really lucky to have joined the DP Medical team, and I can’t wait to get to know them more.”


DP Medical supports pioneering charity work

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

In our latest guest blog, Honorary Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Brian Sommerlad from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, talks about his relationship with the renowned charity CLEFT and explains more about his pioneering work in Bangladesh, which DP Medical has recently supported.

 

“As a plastic surgeon at Great Ormond St Hospital for Children (GOS), my main clinical activity has been the care of children (and adults) with cleft lip and palate.

 

“I am also the chairman of CLEFT, after founding the charity in 2007, which funds research into cleft lip and palate and supports cleft teams in several low-resource countries. I have been involved in supervising some of the research which CLEFT funds and supporting cleft teams in Sri Lanka, Uganda and Egypt in addition to Bangladesh.

 

“Our major initiative at the moment is a project to develop, with Bangladeshi colleagues, a comprehensive cleft centre in the Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burns and Plastic Surgery associated with Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

 

“In my 18 years’ experience of regular visits to Bangladesh to assist and teach, I have become aware of the shortcomings of many initiatives. None provide all the ongoing care needed for children with cleft lip and palate, including speech therapy, orthodontics and further surgery which is usually required. This is the basis of the centre which we are establishing and we are also looking at setting up similar centres in Sylhet and Chittagong.

 

“I am about to embark on another trip to Bangladesh and I will be there for almost three weeks. Colleagues from the GOS cleft team are joining me for the last week.

 

“DP Medical has supported us on this latest trip by providing an endoscope at a reduced price which will enable the team (especially the speech and language therapist funded by CLEFT) to investigate the palate function of patients whose speech is unsatisfactory. With a C-arm which we provided previously for X-rays, it will provide the equipment needed in the centre in Dhaka for palate investigations in the long-term.

 

“It really is a real team effort by everyone involved and is such valuable work to be part of it. If anyone is able to donate and support the work of CLEFT, please visit www.cleft.org.uk for more details.”
