Patient Perspective

Being admitted to hospital is a stressful time for all patients. However, plus-size patients can often be left waiting for longer periods of time after admission whilst suitable equipment is sourced, greatly adding to the stress and anxiety of the patient.

These insecurities coupled with the need for different equipment, can often result in fear and a loss of dignity.
It is important from a patient’s perspective that the correct equipment in all hospital scenarios is made readily available without stigma or judgement.

Having tendered for the provision of bariatric equipment for the Trust
in 2017, I am very pleased to say that our experience with Medstrom after two years has been excellent.

Their commitment and dedication to ensuring the Trust gets the best service cannot be faulted. Their focus is patient centred and comments and suggestions are encouraged to enhance and improve the service.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Medstrom for the provision of this type of medical equipment.
