A COMPANY in Huddersfield has achieved “product partner” status.
Information management systems supplier Visual Systems Healthcare, based at Wakefield Road, Denby Dale, is the first official product partner for Lean Healthcare Academy under a project pertinent to companies and organisations supplying the NHS.
Visual Systems Healthcare designs and manufactures a full range of visual display products, including outdoor and indoor signs, ward information boards, patient name signs and bed patient chart holders.
The product partner initiative supplements the expanding stable of products and services offered by the Lean Healthcare Academy, a leader in the field of healthcare training and a division of Ilkley-based online training pioneer Virtual College.
Judith Clarkson, divisional director at Virtual College, said: “Due to huge demand from our 24-strong network of NHS member organisations, we have implemented the scheme to bring all product partners under a single supply umbrella.
“They will all be carefully selected and vetted to ensure they offer only the most relevant and value for money products required throughout the NHS.
“In return, product partners will gain access to a growing network of established clients through the Lean Healthcare Academy’s online store. They will also feature in our marketing material and have opportunities to sponsor relevant sector-specific events.”
Helen Hunter, director at Visual Systems Healthcare, said: “Becoming the Lean Healthcare Academy’s first official product partner is an opportunity for us to further strengthen our existing partnership with the NHS.”
