Direct Healthcare Group (DHG) has been awarded the Medical, Life Sciences & Healthcare Award at the Insider Made in Wales Awards 2017.

The award is in recognition of DHG’s continued approach to providing innovative solutions and processes that impact the care giver and patient, to ultimately exceed their needs. Recent innovations include the Mercury Advance SMARTcare®, an evolution in pressure care technology that offers effective dual therapy in a single surface by combining advanced, clinically proven technologies previously only available in separate hybrid surfaces.

The Direct Healthcare Group was also recognised for pushing the boundaries in the provision of robust clinical evidence within the pressure care industry, publishing the UK’s largest multi-site evaluation on the implementation of the Dyna-Form® Mercury Advance. This study established ‘real world’ evidence of its impact on pressure ulcer prevention and the release of nursing time ‘back to care’.

DHG will continue in its approach to service, innovation and clinical evidence across its entire portfolio of pressure care, bariatric solutions and specialist seating.

Graham Ewart, Managing Director, said: “Delivering a genuine improvement to patient care delivery and experience is at the very heart of everything that Direct Healthcare Group does. We are delighted to have achieved this award and are proud that our solutions continue to benefit patients and healthcare providers across the UK.”
