Leading medical courier service launches in Shropshire
ERS Medical has launched its medical courier service for GP Practices and other locations across Shropshire and the surrounding area.
Launched on 1st April, the service has been commissioned by The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, with ERS Medical being the successful winner of the competitive procurement process.
Anthony Lloyd, ERS Medical’s Senior Operations Manager for the North, comments: “We’re delighted to launch our industry-leading medical courier service for Shropshire, which will help over 200 locations as well as many GP Practices in the region.”
The medical courier service will be operating from a brand-new base in Shropshire, making this ERS Medical’s 23rd site in the country.
Anthony adds, “ERS Medical has invested in a new site and we’re also looking forward to giving back to the local economy by creating more jobs and supporting the local supply chain.”
ERS Medical’s courier service will run seven days a week, with reduced weekend operations. It will involve the collection and delivery of healthcare-related items including pathology specimens, pharmacy items, intra-hospital mail and CSSD instruments.
