When it comes to relationships with our customers, we don’t just care about the sales.

Our sales team have created some amazing bonds with our customers, and we always make sure that we’re supporting our customers, not just with product but with their initiatives, charity work and community outreach.

Our Product Specialist, Rob, recently met with the Stoma Team at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, who shared that they will be doing a charity walk, along with other nursing staff to raise funds for a colleague who suffered a stroke in 2022

Our Carbon Reduction Plan

In 2022, the NHS Net Zero Supplier roadmap was published which outlined the objectives and requirements of working towards a goal of being carbon-zero by 2045.

All suppliers of the NHS have been encouraged to align their objectives to the supplier roadmap as the supply chain is an indirect contribution towards the NHS’s carbon footprint.

The three core areas of focus are:

  • Direct business activities – e.g., fleet cars, use of public transport
  • Indirect business activities – e.g., electricity consumption
  • Indirect business infrastructures – e.g., staff travel to work, waste contribution

CliniMed and SecuriCare are committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2045.

Please follow the link to read about a few of the projects and ongoing initiatives we’re investing in as a business to reach this goal.

Investors in People – We’re Gold!

We have some fantastic news to share!

Following our Investors in People assessment, we are thrilled to announce that we have achieved… We invest in people gold accreditation at both CliniMed and SecuriCare.

This demonstrates our ongoing commitment to investing in our people; without our staff, we would not be able to achieve this. Only 26% of organisations achieve gold IiP accreditation. At the crux of it, it means that everyone is involved in supporting each other and doing their best to make work better.

The Investors in People assessment was an excellent opportunity to hear from the team, and we are so pleased that our scores have improved across all areas and our overall benchmark has also risen. But we will keep improving and keep moving forward!
