Medical Supplies & Consumables

We understand that a well-stocked medical supplies cupboard is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. Therefore, it’s important that your infection control products and protective equipment are fully replenished.

As the one-stop shop for all of your medical consumables, we offer a wide range of quality clinical and non-clinical products that also help to ensure your compliance with relevant legislation.

Our extensive collection includes hand hygiene products and clinical consumables to help prevent the spread of infection. Furthermore, our wide range of day-to-day hygiene supplies, PPE and medical spill kits are a necessary part of any workplace environment.

Hand Hygiene

Hand hygiene and infection control are very closely linked to one another. In order to control the spread of infection in your healthcare environment, ensure the hands touch as few surfaces possible and are kept clean. We have a comprehensive range of high-quality handwashing and hand drying solutions that are suitable for all handwashing environments, including dental sinks and treatment rooms.

Initial No Touch Signature Dispensers

Our No Touch soap dispensers come in white or silver and have an antimicrobial coating to prevent cross contamination. The lack of contact between the user and the dispenser helps prevent the transfer of pathogens from one user to the next.

You choose your soap preference from our range of foam and liquid soaps, including our antibacterial soaps. Our soaps are contained within single-use pouches, removing the chance of bacteria contamination within the soap that tends to occur through the use of refillable pouches.

Initial Antibacterial Handwash

Our foam and liquid handwashes are perfume and dye free and kill 99.99% of bacteria. Contained within single-use pouches advised by the NHS.

Initial Handwash

Our Natural Fresh and Sensitive soaps are mild to suit daily handwashing. Dermatologically tested and pH-friendly. EU Ecolabel and Nordic Swan certified.

Initial Moisturising Cream

Our nourishing and moisturising liquid hand cream is dermatologically tested and available in 375ml singe-use pouches as advised by the NHS.

Hand Drying

Keeping the hands dry is an important part of the infection control process. Supported by studies carried out by University of Leeds and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, paper towels are a great solution for all healthcare environments as they remove more missed pathogens during handwashing than hand dryers. We offer reliable delivery on a wide range of paper towels, as well as a choice of dispensers.

Hand Sanitiser and Surface Disinfection

Using hand sanitisers and surface disinfectants throughout your premises will reduce the spread of pathogens via hand transmission and the growth of bacteria on surfaces, lowering the risk of infection to your patients, staff and customers.

Hand Sanitiser Dispensers

This versatile 1L No Touch dispenser is hands-free, meaning users avoid contact with the unit and unwanted pathogens. The dispenser releases our Initial Alcohol Hand Sanitiser automatically, which is effective against a broad spectrum of pathogens. The sanitiser evaporates quickly to leave the hands feeling dry and fresh.

Our twin dispensers are one of our most popular products. Covered by our Signature range’s integral antibacterial coating, these dispensers inhibit the growth of bacteria and hold two high capacity 100m twin rolls.

This option is perfect for doctor's and dental surgeries, beauticians and similar premise types that may have limited washroom space because of it's compact size.

Mops and Mopheads

Consider the colour choice before purchasing a mop in order to avoid confusion and allow unwanted pathogens into spaces such as food preparation spaces and public areas.

The national colour coding scheme for hospital cleaning materials and equipment on the right-hand side is vital for healthcare practices to follow, but also a good guide for other businesses to adopt as best practice.
