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.

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.

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.

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.”


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.”

Experts gather for FEES masterclass

DP Medical Uncategorized Leave a comment

DP Medical is supporting an innovative masterclass that will see Speech and Language Therapists (SLT) gather together to learn more about the Fibreoptic Endoscopic of Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES).

 

The training event, being organised by the adult SLT department at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, will concentrate on excellence in practice and include the anatomy and physiology viewed on flexible nasendoscopy, indication/contraindication and safety, how to do the FEES examination well, and practical scoring and interpretation practice.

 

DP Medical has recently provided the stroke unit at the hospital with a XION EndoCompact and is supporting the event sponsoring the refreshments and supplying some equipment for the hands on element of the course.

 

Alafiya Sachak, a speech and language therapist at Royal Berkshire Hospital, said: “It is so important to really understand the theory and practicalities of conducting a complex assessment such as FEES; and having the right background knowledge is empirical.

 

“We are fortunate to have been able to organise an expert like Annette Kelly to provide us with the knowledge and expertise on this subject through this very exciting one-day FEES course. We will have a great mix of professionals on the course including Speech and Language Therapists from other trusts, ENT doctors, and stroke consultants.”

 

The FEES course, presented by Annette Kelly, will take place on Monday 20 November 2017 and is a great introduction for those new to FEES, as well as a wonderful CPD opportunity for those already using FEES.

 

As places will be limited, book your place on the course soon, please email: alafiya.sachak@royalberkshire.nhs.uk  or call 0118 3225205 for further information.
