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.”


Xoran set to showcase world-leading technologies

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.”

 

 

 


DP Medical looks to the future

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

Leading healthcare medical supplier, DP Medical Systems, has announced plans to shift its attention in the dental magnification market to focus on the latest microscope technology.

 

Douglas Pitman, managing director of DP Medical Systems, said: “The dental microscope market has been developing fast over the last few years and we are proud to have been on that journey as suppliers of the new Global A series microscope which we feel represents the very latest in dental microscope technology.

 

“Throughout this time, we have also provided quality loupes and lights to thousands of dentists. However, it has become clear that the need for advanced systems such as Global microscopes is now superseding the more basic forms of magnification and, therefore, we have taken thDouglas Pitman - DP Medicale decision to no longer provide loupes as part of our product range.

 

“We appreciate this may be disappointing news for some of our loyal customers but 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.

 

“Along with other experts in the field, we consider the Global A series to be the natural choice moving forward. With improved diagnosis, treatment and predictability, the microscope offers far superior magnification and significantly enhances operator posture. We strongly believe that this is where the future of advanced dentistry magnification now lies and, as such, Darren Young, our UK dental business manager, and his team will be spearheading our activity in this area. Darren has over 12 years’ experience and brings a wealth of specialist knowledge and expertise in this developing market.”

 

Jeff Metcalf, international sales manager at Global Surgical Corporation (GSC), said: “Dentists are increasingly opting to use higher magnification to diagnose and treat their patients. This global trend can be traced to greater awareness of the numerous benefits of the microscope and, as a leading dental microscope manufacturer, we have witnessed this change first hand.

 

“International demand for dental operating microscopes is fuelling the continued growth of GSC and this success can be attributed to our steadfast commitment to customer satisfaction and the uncompromising quality of the products. We have formed partnerships with local distributors all over the world, such as DP Medical in the UK, to maintain a close connection with customers. DP Medical’s outstanding work has propelled GSC to the number one selling dental operating microscope in the UK and we are looking forward to an exciting future together.”

 

Dr Julian Webber BDS MS, specialist endodontist from the Harley Street Centre for Endodontics in London, said: “The dental operating microscope and the enhanced magnification it offers, represents probably the single greatest advantage in clinical endodontics in the last 25 years. As a dedicated user of Global Microscopes I have reached the conclusion that in the changing world of dentistry, all specialities would benefit from this technology and the improvements it will bring to surgical restorative and periodontal outcomes for the benefit of all our patients.”

 

Surgitel will continue to supply Loupes to UK customers through a new distributor.

 


Egypt calls for DP Medical

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

A leading UK healthcare supplies firm has been selected by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to provide state-of-the-art forensic examination equipment in Egypt.

 

DP Medical Systems, based in Surrey, has now installed its MediScan software and HD video Colposcope in both Cairo and Alexandria to further develop the ability to record and document sexual assault and abuse in the North African country.

 

MediScan, developed by DP Medical, provides clinicians with a secure pathway for recording, storing and encrypting patient gynaecology examinations for analysis and archiving. The still images and video are captured in real-time and stored against the patient record for retrieval anywhere in the hospital.

 

The Video Colposcope is an advanced high resolution video camera with integrated high intensity LED illumination. The equipment provides a compact stand-alone solution for true video and still images in the forensic gynaecological field.

 

Yomna Abou Hussein, Programme Assistant at UNODC, said: “UNODC is working on a project which aims to improve the criminal justice response to cases of violence against women in Egypt. We therefore work with governmental authorities that are involved in the criminal justice system such as the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Justice, the Prosecution and the Egyptian Forensic Medicine Authority (FMA).

 

“We have worked with FMA on establishing a specialised clinic within the authority specialised in receiving female victims of violence due to the importance of forensic evidence in these types of cases. Currently there is one clinic in Cairo and another in the FMA’s premises in Alexandria and each has one colposcope and MediScan software. The equipment has been very helpful to the FMA given its advanced technology that will enable the forensic practitioners to effectively collect evidence which would be later presented during the judicial process and will surely play a key role in the proceedings.

“The installation of the equipment from DP Medical went smoothly and we are looking forward to deploying another colposcope for a new clinic that will be established in a different city in Egypt soon.”

 

Rob Hampson, from DP Medical, who travelled over to Egypt to complete both the install and staff training, said: “We were honoured to be selected by UNODC to supply our MediScan software and HD Video Colposcope to locations in Cairo and Alexandria. This is the culmination of many months of work so it is fantastic for everyone involved for the equipment to be up and running as it means this innovative technology can now be used to help those that need it. The staff were very welcoming and attentive to all aspects of the Mediscan training which, I hope will benefit many.

 

“The business development and outreach of the MediScan software outside of the UK is growing, we hope that the successful conclusion of this project will lead to further opportunities for DP Medical.  This is the second install on the African continent in two years, and with more foreign FME clinicians being trained in the UK each year using MediScan, I am sure that our installs abroad will be on the rise. We are already discussing future project with UNODC and hope that our relationship with them will continue to grow.”

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.”

New recruit puts customers first

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

Customer service is at the heart of everything we do here at DP Medical and having the right staff who share these values is vital. That’s why we’re delighted to announce the appointment of Louise Wild as an area manger to our growing team. In our latest blog, Louise talks about her background in medical sales and why good customer service is integral to how she operates.

 

Louise said: “I’ve had a varied background which started off with me running pubs for 15 years! After that I decided on a career change and became a business manager at a pressure washer company mainly working with the MoD and NHS. I began to take more of an interest in the medical side of the job and eventually moved just into medical sales. Following that I spent eight years with Olympus as an ENT sales specialist which is where I really honed my craft.

 

“I love the NHS and because I’ve been involved with it for a number of years now I know how the system works. Initially it’s hard to get your head around it all because it such a complex and vast organisation but with experience you learn how to navigate it and off you go!

 

“I’ve only been in post as DP Medical’s area manager for south central and south west for a couple of months but it feels like I’ve always been here. I’m enjoying running my area with some autonomy and doing it my way which suits my style. I like the travel and the hands-on training I received was second to none. It meant I was able to really understand how all the kit works right from the early days and not spend weeks in a classroom so I could get out on the road quicker and meet our lovely customers.

 

“I moved to DP Medical because I wanted to work for a smaller company again where you are not just a number and the way of working is smarter and more streamlined. It’s great to be able to have a more personable approach as I found with the larger companies it could become quite robotic. Admittedly there is nowhere to hide if things don’t go well but the advantages definitely outweigh that!

 

“To find myself at a company where excellent customer service matters to them as much as it does to me is fantastic. It’s always important to keep in mind that this job is all about people and delivering them with what they need so they can deliver a top class service to patients. On the occasions when things don’t go right, it’s vital my customers know I will sort it and I do. That’s always been the way I operate and to have the support of the company to enable me to do that is a great help.”
