DTR Medical is delighted to announce that they are the 2020 winners of the “Partnership with the NHS” Award at the MediWales Innovation Awards! The award was given to DTR Medical’s SNAP, Endoscope Guide for acknowledging their collaboration and partnership with Chris Coulson, PhD, FRCS, Consultant ENT Surgeon and Ajith George, FRCS, Consultant ENT Surgeon in the development of the essential product and helping to bring it to market. This innovative device enables ENT Clinicians and Speech & Language Therapists to return to Nasendoscopies. This procedure is critical in the diagnosis of Head and Neck Cancer, by reducing COVID-19 risks for the healthcare professional.

In order to distribute a free box to every UK NHS ENT Clinic, DTR Medical’s collaboration was required. They assisted by packaging and distributing the product for every ENT Clinic to have. All future orders will go through DTR Medical and it will enable the product to be distributed globally and address a worldwide issue.

This is DTR Medical’s 7th MediWales Award,  and it highlights their continued success in bringing medical devices to the market that are Time Saving, Life Saving and Cost Saving. As well as their 2nd Award for partnering with the NHS demonstrating their ethos and commitment to listening to Clinicians’ needs and questions like “do you do?” or “can you get?”.

The team at endoscope-i were thrilled with the announcement and added: “We would just like to say thank you for your professionalism and making the SNAP a safe way to continue cancer diagnostics through the pandemic. We feel so much safe now performing this examination.”
