CliniMed

CliniMed Ltd offers a unique range of skin care products that are cost effective without compromising on quality. Appeel Sterile Medical Adhesive Remover helps to prevent medical adhesive-related skin injury (MARSI) and pain by facilitating the quick and easy removal of dressings and other adhesive appliances from the skin. Repeated MARSI caused by the removal of medical adhesive products can introduce problems that weaken the skin’s barrier function. This can lead to local or systemic infection. Appeel Sterile is currently the only sterile silicone-based medical adhesive remover suitable for use on intact and injured skin. Appeel Sterile is strongly recommended for persons at risk of infection including those with open wounds, intravenous access sites, central lines, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEGs), and those who are immunocompromised. International medical consensus now recommends that a medical adhesive remover should be available to all healthcare professionals.

How many organisations/clients currently utilise the service/solution across the UK?

CliniMed markets and distributes a range of high-quality medical device products throughout the UK. The core areas of operation for the company include stoma care, urology, continence, and wound care. CliniMed has been working consistently and closely with an array of healthcare professionals in the community and hospital sectors, as well as directly with patients, to ensure it retains a class-leading reputation for product, education, and service provision. CliniMed’s sister company SecuriCare (Medical) Ltd is a Dispensing Appliance Contractor (DAC) which dispenses continence and stoma appliances direct to patients. SecuriCare also has one of the largest independent teams of specialist Stoma Care Nurses in the NHS. CliniMed products are available via the NHS Supply Chain or direct from CliniMed and are accessed by NHS organisations across the UK.

Is there anything you would like to make delegates aware of ahead of the Infection Prevention & Control Conference?

Appeel Sterile Medical Adhesive Remover is currently the only sterile silicone-based adhesive removal product and complements the clean and aseptic techniques used within the acute setting. This makes it the safest choice for use with vascular access devices and other adhesive appliances. Its unique sterile formulation is specially designed to care for even the most fragile skin. Appeel Sterile is shown to reduce:

 

  • Infection rates
  • Need for analgesia
  • Nursing time
  • Costs

 

Appeel Sterile is available as a single-use foam applicator which allows for accurate application, 5ml liquid sachet for larger areas and dressings such as abdominal or spinal and wipes for use on small adhesive tapes, dressings and around nasogastric tubes. All formats are available to order from the NHS Supply Chain.
