Our Core Services

Handling With Care

We provide a ‘white glove’ delivery service to point of use within a hospital. This eliminates the reliance on 3rd party couriers, and ensures the product are immediately available for Theatre staff to use


Order What You Need

Every day, high-value items can be picked and delivered in single units, to match your immediate Theatre requirements. This lowers the value of inventory held at the hospital and reduces wastage

Service Performance

Culturally, our business is built upon the delivery of very high service levels. This enables our customers to focus on other aspects of their business


Inventory Planning

We analyse demand data from SAP and customer forecast information to actively manage inventory levels. This ensures we achieve very high levels of first-time availability

KPI Reporting

We compile comprehensive KPI reports to demonstrate the performance and cost effectiveness of the service provided. These are actively reviewed to identify areas for improvement

Bespoke Services


Item Tracking

We use RFID tags to track high-value items through the supply chain. Stock is automatically receipted when the devices are placed in a Wavemark cabinet.  The system also provides an electronic record that links patient details to the devices used in the procedure


HCTED Compliance

We process HCTED orders via NHS Supply Chain. This allows NHS Trusts to benefit from our bespoke service offer whist achieving full compliance with the NHSE HCTED programme

IT Connectivity

For simplicity, we can process orders and invoicing via EDI. We are also configured to integrate with data exchange platforms such as GHX
