A South Wales medical supply company has revealed plans for a new facility in London to drastically reduce the time taken to deliver life-saving resources to patients.
Hospital Innovations, based in Pontyclun, specialises in delivering innovative, specialist products for use in orthopaedic and corrective surgery to hospitals and clinics around the world. The launch of its London Tissue Company will enable supplies – which include bone, soft tissue and skin – to be safely stored in the south-east of England making it considerably quicker to distribute provisions to patients.

The new purpose-built facility, located in Brentford, is scheduled to open by year end.
The move bolsters Hospital Innovations’ status as an emergency service provider for major centres in and around London as well as south-east of England’s burn network hospitals.
Sarah Lister-Sims, managing director of Hospital Innovations, said: “We have experienced a rapidly growing demand and establishing a base in London was the next logical step. The new facility is more accessible, further increases our network and puts us in a prime position to enhance our service to one of our core markets.”
Phil Davies, founder of Hospital Innovations, said: “The London Tissue Company is a very exciting development for Hospital Innovations and will allow us to provide the same first-class products and service, but even faster. Supplying medical essentials such as skin grafts or bone is very time sensitive and getting the product to the patient, who can often be on the operating table, as soon as possible is paramount.
“Having a dedicated site in Brentford will reduce transport time, both from our import hubs to storage, and from our dedicated facility to our customers and we look forward to beginning operations this quarter.”
Founded in 2008, Hospital Innovations is a Human Tissue Authority (HTA) licensed supplier of specialist products used in orthopaedic and corrective surgeries and works in partnership with five of the world’s leading tissue banks.
