Supply AwardsWrightington, Wigan & Leigh (WWL) NHS Foundation Trust’s Excellence in Supply Awards 2012, sponsored by North West NHS Procurement and NHS PSD Network, were recently awarded.

Now in their second year, and following on from the success of the inaugural event, the Excellence in Supply Awards aims to recognise the hard work and exceptional service provided by suppliers to WWL NHS FT. In the Innovation category, Sheffield-based Arthrex Ltd were awarded the prize, based on their submission for ACL TightRope® and FlipCutter® – novel products used in arthroscopic Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction.

Accepting the award on behalf of the company, Regional Sales Manager Graham Jardine commented, “The Excellence in Supply Awards recognise exceptional service delivered to the Trust. Arthrex pride ourselves on innovation in the field of arthroscopic surgery and minimally invasive orthopaedics – we have a strong pipeline of new products that are released quarterly. Working closely with orthopaedic surgeons globally, we create solutions to make even the most complex procedures simpler, safer and more reproducible – which is in keeping with our philosophy of ‘Helping Surgeons Treat Their Patients Better’.”
