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.”
