CS Medical is now Care Surgical
As of Monday 9th November, CS Medical is now Care Surgical.
Over the past 5 years, CS Medical has become a trusted name in the operating theatre and is widely known for outstanding product quality and customer service.
So why are we changing our name?
Simple! Our mission is to advance and improve patient Care in the Surgical environment. We feel our fresh new brand better represents who we are and our position as innovative product engineers and reliable suppliers of high quality, affordable patient positioning solutions. We believe our new name highlights our purpose and company philosophy and brings together our brand internationally.
What difference will it make to our customers?
The answer is, very little. You’ll notice our new name on emails and documentation we send to you, such as invoices. We’ll be asking you to address your purchase orders to Care Surgical, and the name on our bank account will change, although all other account details will remain the same. Apart from that, our commitment to enhance patient outcomes will continue as our prime focus as well as the driving force behind everything that we do. We’re the same company with the same experienced team, just with a new face! Your primary point of contact, orders and distribution schedule will remain the same.

Simple but Effective Head Support for Covid-19 Patients in the ICU
Do you place your patient’s head laterally while in the prone position?
We know that a number of ICUs turn the patient’s head from side-to-side while ventilated in the prone position. So, with the help of clinicians on the front line, we have developed the CS Disposable Lateral Head Support (Adult), order code CSM-2410. This allows you to reposition your patient without disconnecting the tubing, therefore maintaining PEEP pressure.

Prone Face Support for Patients in the ICU
We realise that for many staff in ICU, treating a patient in the prone position is unfamiliar territory. That is where we can help.
The simple-to-use CS ProneOne Head Support distributes pressure evenly across the patient’s forehead and cheekbones and protects the delicate nerves around the eyes.
To find out more about the CS ProneOne, or to request copies of our prone positioning guides, call our advisers now on 020 8050 4671

We’re Still Here
As the country goes into lockdown and companies around the UK suspend operations, we’d like to assure our customers that we are still here to supply the supports you need to keep your patients safe in Theatre and the ICU.
Our customer service and sales advisers are now working safely from home and are available to take your calls to help you choose the best products to support your patients.
We’re maintaining a skeleton staff in our warehouse to ensure your orders continue to be dispatched on the day that you place them for next working day delivery.
If you’re new to CS Medical products, call 020 8050 4671 now to discuss how we can help you to help your patients.

Thinking of the Environment
We’ve recently been asked why our instruction for use leaflets are placed inside the plastic bag with our products, rather than being stuck to the outside of the bag.
The answer is simple: Both the bags we use and the leaflet we print can be recycled. If we were to stick labels to the bags, none of it could be recycled.
So there you have it! Next time you open one of our products, be sure to recycle the packaging.

February is the month each year that our ISO 13485 certification is reviewed by the external auditor. This checks that we’re still working to the high standard required by the accreditation assessors and that is expected by our customers. Once again, we have passed our audit with flying colours.
Being ISO 13485 accredited means you can be confident that:
- All CS Medical products have been designed and tested to international standards and are fully legally compliant
- Our staff are fully trained to provide the best advice and guidance
- Our systems are regularly audited to ensure they are working properly and in the best way
- We are constantly looking for ways to improve our working practices and to ensure that problems are quickly identified and rectified.

Celebrating 4 years of CS Medical
In the 4 years since CS Medical started trading, the company has gone from strength to strength. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, our excellent customer service and the good relationships we have with our customers.
During the past 4 years we have expanded our product range, achieved ISO accreditation and sponsored our first positioning training event. We’ve employed a dedicated team of staff in the Northwest Powerhouse region. Our products are now being used throughout Europe, in the USA and latterly in Japan.
To celebrate our birthday, the staff headed down to our local indoor karting track where our operations director, Ricky Dearnley-Davison emerged as the victorious race winner.

Stirrups have remained the same for years, with sharp angles to collect bacteria and mechanisms that trap nurses’ hands.
Kyra’s designers have listened to the concerns of users and have designed a stirrup that is easy to use and doesn’t have the issues of the others on the market. As an added bonus, each pair of stirrups comes with a free cart.
Kyra stirrups are proving a huge success in the USA and we’re proud to have been selected as the sole UK distributor.
- Flexible boot to accommodate larger patient calves
- Improved infection control with silicone rather than Velcro straps
- Fin design to protect the peroneal nerve
- Pinch points have been removed to make it safer for staff
- Thicker pads for added pressure relief
- 22 degrees of additional lithotomy range
Call our advisors on 020 8050 4671 to talk about our trade out scheme and stirrup audits.
