Infection control specialist DDC Dolphin has been named an NHS preferred supplier for medical pulp macerators across the UK.
NHS hospitals and care facilities can now choose DDC Dolphin sluice room macerators to dispose safely of medical pulp and human waste – protecting patients and staff from infection.
DDC Dolphin is one of just two macerator manufacturers to be chosen for this tender. The company already has approval to service and maintain all brands of macerators in NHS sluice rooms throughout the UK.
The new macerator supply approval has come from the NHS Supply Chain, acting on behalf of the NHS Business Services Authority. It is currently for 12 months but can be extended up to 48 months.
DDC Dolphin had to meet strict procurement criteria based on product quality, support and after-sales service, inventory and logistics, sustainability and price.
A DDC Dolphin spokesman said: “We are delighted that the NHS has chosen our macerators to help prevent infection in hospitals across the country.
“By approving DDC Dolphin for the supply as well as the maintenance of its macerators, the NHS now has a seamless solution for its sluice rooms. This is an important guarantee of quality, efficiency and effectiveness.”
