Healthcare Matters Exhibit at OTAC Llanelli

Yesterday Adam, Geraint and Cassie represented Healthcare Matters at the OTAC Conference in Llanelli. Healthcare Matters have been a distribution partner for Seating Matters in North Wales (and the North West) for a decade, and having recently extended this area to cover South Wales, this was a great opportunity to introduce ourselves in South Wales.

The day was very well attended by Healthcare Professionals and the the stand was visited consistently throughout the day.

Sales Director, Adam said “Credit to OTAC, it was a really well organised show! There was a vibrancy to the day, the OT’s were all so enthusiastic and were really interested in the features of the products and the supporting clinical evidence. We look forward to developing the relationships that we have started and building a reputation in South Wales, to match the one we’ve established in the north”.

To learn more about the clinical evidence, to receive a Clinician’s Handbook or to book in any free training or assessments, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01978 269901.

Wrexham ITU Nurses Bed Push Successful in Raising Money

A big Well Done from Healthcare Matters to the ITU Nurses of Wrexham Maelor Hospital!

On Saturday 7th of July the Critical Care Team completed a bed push through Wrexham Town Centre, aiming to raise £500 to be spent on equipment for their ward, which will make it more comfortable for patients.

So far they have raised in excess of £800 on the Just Giving page alone, not including the bucket collection and you can still support them by donating here:

Healthcare Matters Staff Become Dementia Friends

All Healthcare Matters staff have recently received Dementia Friends Training, taking the time to learn a little more about Dementia, and how we can help those living in our communities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pictured are two of the groups proudly showing of their Dementia Friends signs and badges. All of the staff found the training fun and enlightening. Managing Director Phil Spiby said “As our staff are in contact with people living with dementia on a daily basis, this training is really important to us!”

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.
