DP Medical gets set for BACO International

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!

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.”


Excitement builds for Dentistry Show

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.

This month our team is heading to the prestigious European Rhinologic Society Congress 2018 (ERS2018) in London. Here, DP Medical’s Rob Atkinson, takes a closer look at DP Medical’s work within the Rhinology sector and what we’ll be focusing on at the event, which takes place from 22-26 April.

 

As one of the UK’s leading medical suppliers, DP Medical has specialised within the ENT field for the past 30 years.

 

We’re proud to say that all of our team have been factory trained in this area and have a wealth of experience in the field.

 

Within Rhinology, we offer an array of products including instrumentation, sinuscopes, patient management software and camera systems which provide the highest quality of imaging.

 

Our partners XION Medical are at the very forefront of technology in this market, and we’re proud to represent them exclusively here in the UK.

 

In 2016, they were recognised for their work at the ‘Innovation Awards Brandenburg/Berlin’ for the development of 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.

We’ll be at stand number 10 throughout the event, so if you’re interested in working with DP Medical Systems, come and say hello!


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.”


Showcase success for DP Medical

In our latest blog, DP Medical’s commercial director Owen Pemberton, looks back at a successful BDIA Dental Showcase.

 

“The BDIA Dental Showcase, this year held at the NEC in Birmingham, is one of the highlights of our events calendar and this year proved to be no different. In fact, we are delighted to report that it was our best ever as we made a record number of sales.

 

“As the largest dental show in the UK, thousands of delegates attend to discover the very latest dental innovations across an unrivalled selection of exhibitor stands. Attracting more than 12,000 members of the dental profession and industry each year, BDIA Dental Showcase is where manufacturers, suppliers and distributors choose to unveil the very latest developments in their field – all under one roof. Visitors are able to enjoy personalised product demonstrations, snap up unbeatable showcase deals, watch highly eng

aging lecture sessions and top up their CPD in the process.

 

“It’s a fantastic event to be part of and one that we entered into this time with a shift in focus as we recently made the decision to no longer provide loupes as part of our product range. Instead we are concentrating on the very latest in dental microscope technology.

 

“As our founder, Doug Pitman, highlighted earlier this year it had become increasingly clear that the need for advanced systems such as Global microscopes is now superseding the more basic forms of magnification. The advancement of microscopes with their enhanced design, affordability, first class quality and the service and support available, has been widely accepted by dental leaders both here in the UK and internationally.

“The BDIA Showcase was the first real test of this change in direction for us as we went purely to demonstrate our A-series Global microscope range and it was very pleasing to get some really positive feedback combined with strong sales. It was incredibly reassuring for us to do so well as it reaffirmed our decision to provide our customers with microscopes which is where we believe the future of advanced dentistry magnification now lies. And the demand for the products is obviously there.

 

“Darren Young, our UK dental business manager, and his team are spearheading our activity in this area so watch this space as we continue to develop our presence in the dental market.”

DP Medical welcomes Mark to the team

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

The cutting edge technology we supply means we need the best technical support to go along with it. That is why we are delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Grant as our new southern service engineer. In our latest blog, Mark tells us about his life-long interest in technology and how happy he is to be putting this to good use in the DP Medical family.

 

“My previous role was with NCR Ltd where I worked as an electro mechanical technician for 17 years.  My job involved fixing ATM machines, EPOS systems and self scanning devices such as the self-service tills in supermarkets that people use every day.

 

“My role of southern engineer here at DP Medical is quite varied. I can do everything from the installation of medical hardware and commissioning, to arranging and carrying out servicing for existing customers’ hardware. On top of all of this I spend my days responding to breakdowns. I cover the entire south of England so a large part of my role is driving, however the satisfaction of successfully carrying out a repair is a great feeling and it really does make it all worth it.

 

“That is what I like best about my role – having the ability to fix what’s broken. It gives me great pleasure to be able to see a problem and solve it. I have always been very inquisitive and interested in learning about electronics and how things work. This new role is ideal for me in that sense as it allows me to broaden my knowledge of new technology and the cutting-edge equipment supplied by this company. I found meeting customers very daunting at the start and it was tricky finding exactly where I needed to go to provide support. I’m definitely getting there though and since my appointment  I’ve found it’s never too hard to find a hospital!

 

“I like DP Medical as it really has a family type of atmosphere, which is often lost in bigger companies. You feel part of the team here and know you can always get the help you need if you’re stuck or turn to somebody and ask questions.

 

“I have manufacturer training coming up soon and it is always great to learn from the people that make the equipment. You can really get hands on there and ask all the questions you have. It’s especially important to get answers to even the most technical ones.

 

“I’m glad to be part of the team and it’s great to feel as if I am making a positive difference to the service team.”


Frances leads the way with fundraising drive!

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

We are so proud of our DP Medical colleague and friend Frances Bridgewater who recently donned her walking shoes in aid of a fantastic cancer charity. Here, in our latest blog, Frances, talks about her Race for Life and how much she enjoyed the experience.

 

“As soon as it was mentioned to me and my colleagues that DP Medical was looking to do some fundraising as part of the organisation’s 30th anniversary celebrations, I knew I wanted to help.

 

“The next step was to find something that I thought I could realistically achieve! I was keen to do something for a cancer charity as it is a cause very close to my family’s heart and when I saw that Cancer Research UK was holding a 10k Race for Life in Stamford, near where I  live, it was the perfect opportunity.

 

“I have to admit that I am not a runner so, as a very keen walker, I knew from the outset that I would aim to walk the course in as quick a time as I possibly could.

 

“It was an absolutely glorious setting and the atmosphere was incredible. Over 1,000 women joined together to take part and it was a wonderful experience just to be involved in the occasion. There was a huge amount of support around the course and you really felt everyone had come together to achieve their own personal goals, whatever they may have been.

 

“I kept an eye on how fast I completed the first kilometre and aimed to maintain that speed for the full race. I ended up finishing in 1hr 40 minutes which I was really pleased with. But the icing on the cake was to have raised £265 which goes directly to the charity to help in the fight against cancer which is such a terrible disease.

 

“It was a great feeling to take part and give something back and I would particularly like to thank everyone at DP Medical for all their support and donations.”
