A Sheffield healthcare company, UK Medical has recently announced a strategic ‘buy out’ from its parent company, Becton, Dickinson and Company. This deal will allow the company to trade independently as UK Medical Ltd, once again.
Based on Lydgate Lane, Sheffield, the company specialises in products used in minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in various organs of the body.
Going forward, UK Medical will continue to serve BD as the UK distributor for the same soft tissue and bone marrow biopsy products that UK Medical was selling before the ‘buy out’.
Speaking at the announcement Ian Aaron, MD of the company, said: “This is a great deal for both companies and we look forward to a continued and long partnership.”
“Alongside our biopsy range we will also have an exciting range of other innovative interventional products. We want to partner with the NHS by supplying products that add value, improve patient care pathways and at the same time provide excellent value. We are very excited to be making a difference to patients and to the NHS.”
As a company, UK Medical is focused on clinical outcomes and working with their customers to achieve the best results and deliver exceptional levels of customer service. Their ethos is to only offer clinically proven medical devices that are cost effective but also improve patient outcomes.
Ian added: “We are crystal clear in our vision to improve the patient’s healthcare experience. It’s what drives us to challenge boundaries, take a holistic approach to product selection and make a tangible difference to the patient.”
In 2012, UK Medical was purchased by CareFusion, a medical technology company, which BD acquired in 2015.
UK Medical will now run independently from its Sheffield headquarters.
