Give Blood – we look after it!
One customer we are particularly proud to have is NHS Blood & Transplant – this summer we celebrate 5 years as the supplier of Whole Blood Transport Systems to the NHS. As part of that comprehensive framework agreement we regularly service the systems at our Warminster factory,
We are all rightly proud of our NHS – a major British institution that leads the world, and at Polar Thermal we would like to think that we are doing our bit – another, albeit minor, British institution!
The rigorous testing process we went through to achieve our position with the NHS was demanding, as it should be. Independent inspections of our factory, work processes, warranties and materials – the final result 100/100 against all comers. The company and their system that came closest to us achieved a score of 72/100 – we were especially pleased that on this occasion our British engineering should come out significantly ahead of our German competitor!
That said, the NHS endorsement validates our Whole Blood, Platelet, Plasma and Transplant Systems for use by the other 27 European Blood Alliance members as well as the National Blood Services from Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
Polar Thermal is working with the Department for International Trade to explore these opportunities.
