Two Bradford-based healthcare contractors with specialist healthcare products have taken measures to raise awareness of their products and services so that people enjoy better health and healthcare.
New Vision is one of the leading designers of products targeting dementia patients. It was first contracted by the NHS in 2012 to create wall murals and display graphics at the Bradford Royal Infirmary’s two dementia wards. This contract laid the foundation for New Vision to establish its specialist healthcare division. The award-winning murals and display graphics in Bradford Royal Infirmary included dementia-friendly memory boxes, image boards and Kodak-style slide wall displays.
Today, New Vision has a full-fledged specialist healthcare product portfolio for dementia sufferers, including a 1950s-style TV that plays films that dementia patients can relate to, a digital fish tank, items for a reminisce room, and dementia-friendly signage. New Vision is one of the two companies in the country offering these products, and it has worked with several NHS trusts in England.
The company has recently launched a website to promote its services to hospitals and care homes. It also has plans to create an online shop for dementia-related products. New Vision Business Development Manager Tony Stead stated that the company was eager to introduce more new products into the market, such as a 1970s-style TV to cater to the sufferers of early onset dementia. Stead believes that New Vision’s new website will help hospitals and care homes provide a more dementia-friendly environment.
EMIS Group, the other healthcare contractor from Bradford, announced that it had re-launched its eye screening for diabetics after the NHS renewed the company’s contract. EMIS will be screening 94,000 patients in the Midlands, and 60,000 in North East. The company has also won a new contract to provide NHS diabetic eye screening to 70,000 diabetics in South West London.
EMIS Group is one of the leading providers of diabetic eye screening and ophthalmology imaging services to NHS trusts. It serves 550,000 patients throughout England.
