DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

DP Medical has helped make sure a team of doctors were looking the part when they went on a recent golf tour.


A group of GPs and ENT doctors and consultants from Berkshire went to Turkey on the golf tour and DP Medical offered support, in conjunction with Halbro Sportswear, by providing some top quality shirts and hats for the players to wear.


Mr Rogan Corbridge, consultant ENT surgeon who went on the trip, said: “This year we once again went to Turkey and stayed at the Maxx Royal, playing golf at the Montgomery where the Turkish Open is being held now and the Carya and Lykia links.

“We had another great tour despite the Thomas Cook collapse and a last minute rearrangement of our flights! It’s a great opportunity for us all to take a step out of clinical practice and invest in a bit of fellowship. We are extremely grateful to DP Medical for their continued and generous sponsorship for the shirts and hats.”


Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical, said: “We were really pleased to be able to provide sponsorship for this trip. These doctors do an amazing job everyday and we wanted to be able show our thanks for the work they do by providing these tops and hats for them to wear.

KAPS visit gives insight into product excellence

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

One of the newest additions to the DP Medical team has just come back from some important training in Germany. Jonathan Peters, area manager for south Wales and southwest England, visited our trusted partner Karl Kaps GmbH & Co. which specialises in the development and manufacture of modern surgical and diagnostic microscopes. Here, in our latest blog, Jonathan gives us the lowdown on his trip.


Obviously, when starting a new job it’s always a steep learning curve at the beginning so I was really excited when I found out that I would be visiting Germany to learn as much as possible about our KAPS range. The high-end products are used all over the world in ENT, ophthalmology, microsurgery, endodontics and gynaecology and, as a company, we are extremely proud to supply them to our customers. We get excellent feedback on the range so I really wanted to find out more.


Myself and DP Medical’s commercial director, Owen Pemberton, flew into Frankfurt airport and then took a 45 min drive to stay in Wetzlar where KAPS has its head office.


We arrived late in the afternoon and were taken on a fascinating tour around Wetzlar where we learnt about the history of the city and how famous the optic industry is there.


The next day, I underwent product training with Owen and Mark Reinhard, international sales manager at KAPS, where I learnt in more detail about the KAPS ENT and colposcopy product ranges. During the training we took a tour of the factory and found out how valuable everyone’s role is and how they produce the technology.


This was really eye opening for me. I think it’s important for sales teams to understand the care and attention to detail that goes into making products and the factory tour helped me understand how much of a team effort it is to get a product to market and, subsequently, enable medical professionals to carry out their day-to-day work.


Mark was excellent at giving us an understanding at how important every component is in the scopes they produce and how this affects the quality of the product. The manufacturing process was great to see at first hand and it was amazing to get a glimpse into how the engineers work and the attention to detail that goes into every product.


I’d like to thank Mark for taking the time out of his busy schedule to meet with me. By having the chance to take part in a personalised and tailored training in a one to one environment, showed that both DP and KAPS value myself as an employee and the contributions I can make moving forward in my role. This input into my development has definitely helped motivate me to do my very best for both companies.

In our latest Q&A, DP Medical’s UK dental business manager, Darren Young gives us the lowdown on the upcoming BDIA Dental Showcase – a major event in the dental events calendar which is taking place this week.


Tell us more about the BDIA Dental Showcase?

The BDIA Dental Showcase is one of the main industry events for the dental profession – and one of the largest. It’s held every year and is a chance for the many suppliers, manufacturers, service providers and associations across dentistry to get together under one roof.


Whether you’re looking for a new suite of dental chairs or a full practice refit, a new set of handpieces or to stock up on consumables, marketing advice or to learn how to buy your next practice, the BDIA Dental Showcase has it all!


It’s one of the highlights of our events calendar and all takes place from 17-19 October 2019 at the NEC in Birmingham.


In terms of these kind of industry events, what makes BDIA stand out?

It’s a fantastic, innovative event to be part of and we’re really looking forward to showcasing our full range of Global A series microscopes. It also tends to be recognised as the trade show where people come with the intention of making a purchase which is great for us!


Who do you hope to see there?

We hope to meet with key opinion leaders, practice owners, specialists, decision makers and influencers within the world of dentistry. We love to get out and about meeting customers, old and new so it’s the perfect fit for us.


What do you enjoy most about attending BDIA?

I enjoy touching base with customers who have previously purchased from us and, of course, make new sales wherever we can. It’s good to be able to showcase what we do as we know we deliver on our promises and are really proud of our customer service.


What products will you have on show this year?

We will be displaying our Global A series Microscopes which are widely considered to be the leading microscope on the market. With improved diagnosis, treatment and predictability, they offer far superior magnification and significantly enhance operator posture.

In addition, we’ll have our camera systems and microsurgeons chair for delegates to see.


What makes DP Medical stand out from the crowd?

I’ve already mentioned our outstanding customer service and commitment to our clients which is second to none. But we are also experts in the dental field. We’ve recently been involved in a really exciting project installing dental microscopes for a brand-new cutting-edge dental hospital in London, as well as an accompanying training facility. We know how important it is that we provide the best possible equipment and service to dental professionals so in turn they can deliver the best possible treatment and care to their patients. Earlier this year we won ‘Distributor of the Year’ from our partner Global Surgical, so we know we are good at what we do!


Where can we find DP Medical at BDIA?

You can find us on stand H42 so make sure you come and say hello!

DP Medical expands in the UK

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

Leading healthcare supplies company, DP Medical Systems, has announced its expansion with the opening of a second UK office.


The firm, which has its head office in Chessington, Surrey, has now established a base in Stockport, Greater Manchester.


The new office will be home to at least four permanent members of staff and a dedicated workshop so any repairs can be conducted on site removing the need for them to always be sent to the Surrey base.


The news comes off the back of recent additions to the DP Medical team including to the software department, sales team, a sales and service rep in Ireland and a new service and contracts manager.


Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical Systems, said: “In 2018 we enjoyed a record high turnover as well as recording double digit growth for the third consecutive year. Each division of the coRob Atkinson - DP Medicalmpany, dental, hospital and services, has also grown substantially and we don’t plan on stopping there so creating another hub in the UK is an essential part of our growth forecasts.


“We are really pleased to be opening our new office in Stockport which will give us another option when it comes to where staff can be based from and improve the customer experience for those based away from the south of England. This decision really reflects the growth and development we have experienced across the UK, as well as in Ireland, recently.”


“We’ve also welcomed a number of new people to our team recently and are particularly excited about expanding the service side of business with the appointment of Jacqui McKenzie as our new service and contracts manager. She will be working to develop our service division which is a key focus for our business in 2020 as we look to offer more extensive packages to the healthcare sector with regard to the servicing and maintenance of vital hospital equipment.


“DP Medical Systems sells ENT, dental, gynaecology and forensic medical equipment to the NHS and private users.


DP Medical at the cutting edge!

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

We spend a lot of our time on the road attending important industry events and meeting customers old and new to showcase the very best of what DP Medical has to offer. And this month has been no exception! Here, in our latest blog, Rob Hampson, our medical division’s Northern England & Scotland Area Manager, gives us an insight into his recent visit to the British Laryngological Association’s (BLA) Cutting Edge Conference 2019 in Edinburgh.


The BLA Cutting Edge Conference is always one of the highlights of our events calendar and it was fantastic that this year it was taking place at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh which is such a historic and iconic venue.


We attend every year as it’s always a very successful meeting and gives us a great opportunity to meet new and current customers. It’s one of the only events where you can find Speech & Language Therapists and ENT Consultants all in one place!


Talking Laryngology


But why is Laryngology so important? The specialism continues to grow as the most exciting branch of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck surgery. Best possible speaking, eating and breathing are so fundamental to the aspirations of people everywhere, that there has never been a greater demand for laryngologists.


The Cutting Edge Conference provides a forum for the international laryngology community to come together and discuss all the latest innovations and developments.


To advance the cause of those with breathing problems, the conference presented the finest breakthrough science, techniques and stunning new paradigms in airway stenosis. For those with speech problems, in-office pathways to rapidly return people to the lives they wish to lead were offered, as well as an in-depth look at the latest developments in spasmodic dysphonia care. For those with swallowing problems, the conference offered technology and working practices that can restore them to society.


Product showcase


It was amazing to be part of a really well set event and we had various XION systems on show to demonstrate how our products can help clinicians and patients alike. This included our Endostrob EL system which can be used for Video Endoscopies and also Stroboscopy examination, along with our Endostrob PL system which comes complete with XION’s HD video scope. Both provide exceptional image quality and the feedback so far has been excellent.


We always enjoy the chance to get out and meet professionals in the medical industry and to demonstrate our world-class products and the BLA Cutting Edge Conference was no different. Thanks BLA, see you next year!

Dentistry Show goes Global!

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

The British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show is being held on the 17th and 18th of May at the NEC in Birmingham, and is always one of the highlights of our events calendar. And this year is certainly no different! However, the 2019 show will be extra special for us, as joining us to exhibit will be Jeff Metcalf, International Sales Manager for our dental partner Global Surgical Corporation. Here, in our latest guest blog, Jeff gives us an insight into his role with American-based Global Surgical, how the company works with DP Medical here in the UK, and why he is looking forward to attending the Dentistry Show so much.


I have been with Global Surgical Corporation (Global) for 16 years.  As International Sales Manager, I am responsible for all sales outside of the United States. I manage a large worldwide network of distributors, independent manufacturer representatives, and Regional Sales Managers.  I really love my job, because I get to meet many people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Global makes fantastic products that I truly believe in.  We also have exceptional customer service, which is emphasised throughout the whole organisation from the top down.


Design for dentists


Global microscopes are specifically designed for dentists. We have the widest field of view on the market, bar none. This allows dentists to see a full-mouth view, which is very helpful in many aspects of dentistry. All of our microscopes are modular in design, so you can start with a basic microscope and add components at any time in the future. The accessories we make today work on the microscopes we manufactured 25 years ago.  Our microscopes are equipped with a 100,000 Lux LED lightsource, which comes with an unheard-of three-year warranty.  All of our cameras are externally mounted so you can always change to the latest technology without having to go through extensive costs to replace internal cameras. This is truly a lifetime product, compared to products that you have to replace to upgrade to the latest technology available. In addition to the great features of the microscope, we only partner with distributors who offer great customer service, as so many companies disappear after the initial sale. Owning a Global product means support is just a phone call away.  It doesn’t matter how old your microscope is, we will support you like it was bought yesterday.


Successful partnerships


DP Medical Systems (DP) is one of our oldest partners. They have been extremely successful, because they have the same philosophy as Global. Customer service is their priority and they sell quality products at fair prices. Their service department has been factory-trained and they do everything including installations, maintenance, and service.  DP representatives can solve any concern that the customer might have. I wish all my partners were like DP, who consistently rank in the top tier of performance for Global’s worldwide distributors.


Customer feedback


I am looking forward to attending the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show because it gives me the opportunity to meet with current and future customers.  Listening and responding to customer feedback and requests fuelled Global’s success. It also gives me the opportunity to work closely with our partners at DP, and observe the obstacles and opportunities they face.   It also allows me to share trends that I see outside of the UK. If you’re attending the event, please come and see us at stand J94.
