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.”

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.

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.”

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 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.


Links strengthened with NHS Supply Chain

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 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.”
