Leading medical supplier DP Medical has announced a major deal with NHS Supply Chain.
A new bulk order has been placed with DP Medical which means NHS Trusts can buy state-of-the-art medical equipment at a discounted rate and also ensure immediate delivery times.
This is the largest of a number of orders NHS Supply Chain has placed with DP Medical in the last seven years cementing their relationship and allowing Trusts across the UK to purchase essential items as cost effectively as possible.
The products on offer includes various systems within the KAPS and XION ranges.
The KAPS SOM line provides traditional and video colposcopes for gynaecological procedures as well as microscopes for ENT, and XION offers innovative swallowing diagnostics systems also within the ENT field.
Rob Atkinson, managing director of DP Medical, said: “This is an exciting deal for customers because it allows NHS Supply Chain to offer our cutting-edge equipment 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 products installed immediately, as opposed to an average six to eight week lead time.
“We have selected some of our most popular products within the KAPS and XION portfolios. Once purchases are made our sales team can also provide all the ongoing support and training whilst our experienced team of engineers are on hand for all maintenance needs so it’s a full package we are able to offer.
“NHS Supply Chain plays a huge part in the NHS purchasing routes and we are delighted to be a supplier on this framework.”
