Healthcare systems around the world are expected to make big savings during this time of austerity; for example in the UK the NHS aims to make savings of £50 - £20 billion in the next three years.
We understand that cost saving is a key priority and for this reason, our in-house team of designers have developed a Resposable® concept, combining reusable and disposable components, which does not compromise on quality yet can reduce cost per procedure by up to two thirds.
Designed, developed and manufactured in the UK, Surgical Innovations (SI) prides itself on offering British precision engineered products of the highest quality whilst keeping procurement in mind.
Our Yelloport+plus™ range recently won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation and is the fastest growing laparoscopic trocar system in the UK, delivering savings of greater than 75% on average in the UK market. The cost benefit is matched by an easy-to-use, effective product that results in less clinical waste.
Below are a couple of examples of how NHS hospitals in the UK have saved thousands of pounds by switching to Resposable® products.
- NHS Hospital in Wiltshire changed to Yelloport+plus™ Resposable® 5mm laparoscopic ports and will save £200,000 over three years.
- NHS hospital in West London changed to Resposable® instrumentation and will save £250,000 in the first year.
