DP Medical Shortlisted for healthcare industry award
DP Medical Systems Ltd has been shortlisted in the Partnership with the NHS category at the South East Healthcare Technologies Alliance (SEHTA) Awards.
The company has been shortlisted for its project with Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, which has seen DP Medical provide a networked image capture system for gynaecological examinations.
The Technology – MediScan – is used across the NHS Trust to capture still images in real-time and stored against a patient’s record for retrieval anywhere in the Trust’s three hospital sites – Royal Free, Barnet and Chase Farm
The system will be used for multiple purposes – with the primary use for colposcopy examinations designed to diagnose serious disease such as cervical cancer.
The Awards ceremony, which partners with Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Heath Science Network’s Expo, will take place on Tuesday 19 January at the Lancaster Hotel, London.
Owen Pemberton, Commercial Director at DP Medical Systems Ltd, said: “The project with Royal Free provides the perfect blueprint for how to work with the NHS. We have developed a really strong relationship with the staff which has allowed us to better understand exactly what they – and ultimately the patients – need.
“We’re delighted to be shortlisted for this award as it highlights the outstanding effort put in by a number of people – and we now keep our fingers crossed for the ceremony later this month.”
Winners of the SEHTA Awards will be put forward for the prestigious national Medilink UK Awards in April.
