With the roadmap for lifting lockdown now announced DLS Medical is ready to meet the “new” challenge for the NHS namely tackling the backlog of elective surgery and treatments that have been on hold during the pandemic. Hopefully our NHS heros will have some opportunity to catch their breath before addressing the mountain of delayed cases.
At the same time the scandal of cheap and unsuitable medical supplies will continue to be a cause for concern. DLS Medical has established a supply chain that relys on established and reliable sources. A good proportion of the plastic products that we supply are manufactured in the UK by our sister company. As such we are able to control supply from raw material to delivery.
All the nonsense around Brexit conintues, the most difficult impact seems to be clogged up ports, who knows when these will start to clear? In the meantime because we have onsite manufacturing, clean room packing and sterilisation we have the advantage of sheilding customers from the worst of the stop start international supplies.
Please get in touch if you think there is anything that we can do to help.
During the lockdown we have been working hard in the background to prepare for our customers returning to some sort of normality. We are re-launching our website which we hope users will find more useful and responsive.
We have put a great deal of effort into improving the product information presented and updated the information available. We are particularly keen to provide details of the service that DLS Medical can provide including Clean Room and on-site, UK based, sterilisation equipment.
The website will continue to evolve, if there are any questions or you require more information please get in touch.
We are launching a range of opthalmic minor surgery packs. We have been supplying these products for many years however these are now available to purchase directly. We have a small number of standard packs but are able to assemble bespoke packs to suit all customer needs.
Packs are assembled and sterilised at our UK site in Peterborough. We work with a small number of carefully selected suppliers to source instruments from Asia. We do not source from China.
