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.

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.

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

 

 


DP Medical celebrates a busy start to 2018

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

Medical device and equipment supplier DP Medical Systems Ltd is celebrating after getting the year off to a strong start.

 

The Surrey-based firm, which specialises in supplying a full range of medical and dental equipment to the public and private sectors, has had a busy first quarter showcasing its product ranges to existing and potential customers at a wide variety of exhibits and events across the country.

 

A particular highlight saw DP Medical support a charity event led by BBC broadcaster Nick Robinson and speech and language therapist (SLT) Julia Selby.

 

Hosted by the Trent Voice Clinical Excellence Network and The University of Sheffield, the event – which was held in March – saw Nick and Julia discuss how the broadcast journalist underwent surgery and speech therapy to recover from voice palsy.

 

Nigel Bridgewater of DP Medical attended the event and showcased the company’s XION video flexible nasal endoscope, which allows clinicians to view the vocal chords.

 

Nigel said: “Usually, vocal chords should be ‘V’ shaped, but one of Nick’s cords was bow-shaped meaning he couldn’t speak.

 

“It was fascinating to hear how Julia’s expertise helped Nick recover and get back on air to lead the BBC’s coverage of the 2015 election. We at DP Medical were honoured to be a part of the event.”

 

The first quarter of the year has also seen the team at DP Medical undertake several new installations of equipment at hospitals across the UK, including the Epsom & St Helier NHS Trust and the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

 

Both hospitals received the XION EndoCompact system –a compact system designed to meet the everyday requirements of ENT practices and outpatient clinical departments, offering LED illumination, video nasophayngscope and a compact camera.(1)

 

Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical, said: “We’re thrilled with the positive response and the level of interest we’ve received from customers this year.”

 

The team at DP Medical is also on the increase, too, this year with a duo of new appointments.

 

Andrew Tasker has been appointed as dental area manager for northern England, Scotland and Wales, and Carl Seabrook has been taken on as the company’s new warehouse manager.

 

Commenting on his new role with DP Medical, Andrew said: “I’m already really enjoying the role and love meeting new people and clients regularly. 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 celebrates after ending 2017 on a high

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

DP Medical Systems is celebrating after finishing its 30th year in business on a high.

 

The Surrey-based organisation saw turnover increase by 14 percent in 2017, reaching approximately £4.3million and marking the company’s third year of consecutive double digit growth.

 

The year also saw DP Medical’s hospital division reach £3million, more than twice its size in 2014, and the company’s service department achieved its highest turnover to date.

 

Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical, said: “We’re thrilled to have finished 2017 – our 30th year in business – on such a high, with strong turnover figures.

 

“The last twelve months have seen some significant changes take place across our business, with our team making some bold decisions in response to shifts in the market.

 

“For example, in August, we made the decision to shift our attention in the dental magnification market away from loupes to more advanced systems, such as Global microscopes.

 

“Having the courage to make decisions such as this has paid off, with record revenue achieved at this year’s BIDA Dental Show. Coupled with our strong performance figures, this proves testimony to the fact that our team understands the markets we work in and that we are committed to responding to our customers’ changing requirements, as technology and the wider healthcare environment continues to evolve.”

 

During 2017, DP Medical was named as the exclusive UK suppliers of several esteemed products and devices, including MobileODT’s pioneering EVA System and world-leading medical imaging firm Xoran Technologies LLC’s xCAT and MiniCAT IQ CT scanners.

 

Rob – who has recently been named as the company’s new managing director – added: “It’s a real credit to the hard work and dedication of our team that such globally renowned names in the medical device world have chosen us as their exclusive UK suppliers.

 

“We look forward to starting our next year in business in a strong position as we keep on providing the exceptional service we’re known for.”

 

DP Medical Systems, which employs 22 people, sells ENT, dental, gynaecology and forensic medical equipment to the NHS and private users.

Leading medical supplier DP Medical is delighted to announce a new commitment deal with NHS Supply Chain.

 

Rob Atkinson - DP Medical

A new order has been placed for a further 20 units consisting of 15 microscopes and five colposcopes, which is the second order NHS Supply Chain has placed with DP Medical in the last two years.

 

Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical, said: “This commitment 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 from a cost perspective, but also in time as they can have the scopes installed immediately, as opposed to an average six-eight week lead time.

 

“NHS Supply Chain plays a huge part in the NHS purchasing routes and we are delighted our partnership with them continues to grow.”

DP Medical brings groundbreaking forensic examination system to UK market

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

Leading UK healthcare supplier, DP Medical, has been named as the exclusive distributor of the pioneering Enhanced Visual Assessment (EVA) System for forensic colposcopy in the UK.

 

The Surrey-based organisation has been selected by MobileODT to deliver its groundbreaking EVA System – a mobile, affordable, and network-connected medical device, which helps forensic nurses conduct Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) exams across the United States, and now enters the UK market.

 

The EVA System is currently used in 27 states across the United States, with over twenty-percent of New York State hospitals conducting forensic examinations using the connected device to document cases of sexual violence and domestic abuse.

 

The EVA System enables secure collaboration and case sharing between healthcare providers and the appropriate authorities, and ensures proper reporting and chain-of-custody record keeping.

 

The portable, lightweight, and wireless features of the EVA System has enabled it to be used extensively across rural areas, expanding the abilities of first responders to cases of sexual violence to conduct high-quality and properly documented examinations no matter where the abuse is reported.

 

The EVA System complements DP Medical’s MediScan workstation – a secure capture and archive system which records, stores and encrypts patients’ gynaecological examinations for analysis.

 

Rob Atkinson, Managing Director of DP Medical, said: “The EVA System is a truly innovative device that is set to revolutionise forensic work. The system enables healthcare professionals to conduct expert-level examinations using a mobile device, from wherever they’re working, quickly and easily.

 

“We ourselves are proud to have brought our own MediScan innovation to the market and this new system complements that perfectly. Our partnership with MobileODT marks a step forward not just in the level of technology available for cervical screening in the UK and Ireland, but also a step closer to making the Mediscan workstation completely portable.”

 

Using a mobile application, the EVA System allows users to captures video and images of the full body surface and external cavities at the point-of-care, with digital patient forms, image filters and annotation capabilities.

 

Additionally, the device allows unlimited information storage and electronic medical records (EMR) integration, as well as the ability to securely engage in remote clinical discussions with peers, supervisors and, in the event of forensic examinations, law enforcement, using the EVA Systems’s Secure Collaboration service.

 

Rob added: “We’re thrilled to be working with MobileODT to bring the system to the UK and Ireland markets, and we’re confident that it will have a huge impact on both healthcare professionals and patients themselves, too.”

 

Ariel Beery, the CEO of MobileODT, said: “We are extremely excited to be working with DP Medical to expand access to forensic colposcopy, and ensure that every victim, everywhere, has the same access to a quality examination. We look forward to working with DP Medical to adapt the EVA System to the particular needs of SARCs to ensure that every SARC has the tools and capabilities they require to extend ever-available care to their community.”

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

DP Medical’s supplier, Xoran Technologies, will be demonstrating its products at the prestigious American Academy of Otolaryngology’s – Head and Neck Surgery’s (AAO-HNSF) annual meeting in Chicago this month.

 

The AAO-HNSF, which represents ear, nose, throat, head and neck physicians and surgeons across the USA, is holding its annual meeting from 10-13 September 2017 and Xoran Technologies LLC, who recently named DP Medical as a distributor for UK & Eire, will be there.

 

Xoran, who will be at Booth 729, will have equipment for demonstration and would welcome a visit by any UK delegates who are planning a visit.

 

Earlier this year, DP Medical was announced as distributors specifically for Xoran’s industry-leading compact and portable xCAT and MiniCAT IQ CT Scanners,

 

Renowned for delivering high resolution, low dose imaging of the sinuses, temporal bones and skull base, the mobile, self-shielded xCAT scanner is ideal for use in theatres, whereas the MiniCATIQ – with its compact design – enables the user to perform CT scans at the patient’s point-of-care, within an office environment.

 

The deal marks a step forward for DP Medical, into the ENT operating room market.

 

Commenting on the agreement recently, Owen Pemberton – commercial sales director at DP Medical, said: “This is a very exciting development for our organisation and cements our position as a market leader when it comes to ENT surgical procedures.

 

“The Xoran scanners fit perfectly within our portfolio of high-quality, state-of-the-art ENT products. They’re very versatile and have great mobility, as well as being very user-friendly.

“We’re confident the scanners will prove popular with the UK market, which currently has extended waiting periods for patients requiring scans. Users can get superior image quality in a faster period of time, with very low radiation levels, benefiting both the patient and the professional.”

 

Dr. David Sarment, President of Xoran Technologies LLC, said: “We selected DP Medical through a United States export process which unveiled to us a dedicated and very focused company with significant experience in distributing high-end medical equipment.

 

“Our companies are a great match as our unique scanners complement DP Medical’s existing range of high-end devices and is able to meet many of their customers’ ENT requirements – both in offices and operating rooms.

 

“Over the last 15 years we’ve installed more than 600 CT scanners domestically and internationally and, through our partnership with DP Medical, we hope to continue to grow our level of success and establish the brand in the UK and Ireland.”
