Birmingham's Salts Healthcare Wins Life Science Award For Innovation

Salts Healthcare has won the Medilink West Midlands Award for ‘Innovation’ and is now in the national finals to be named one of the most forward-thinking medical and healthcare companies in the UK. The 300-year-old family-owned Birmingham firm was recognised for the research, design and manufacturer of its latest product; Confidence®BE - a ground-breaking stoma bag with a range of clever features to help people feel comfortable, confident and free to live life to the full.

The Confidence BE® range was launched to medical professionals in October 2017 after the biggest research programme ever completed by the company which has 600 staff and offices throughout the UK and across the globe. The product range was an instant success, receiving excellent reviews from medical professionals and patients alike for its design, innovative use of materials and customer-friendly features. The citation read: ‘Awarded for the development of an innovative technology, design or process that has produced a major improvement in business performance or end user benefit’.

Medilink WM CEO Richard Stone said: “We work with life science companies daily helping them with their present goals, supporting their R&D and supplying innovation advice so we know the breadth and depth of skills across the region. In the current climate of almost continual political, economic and commercial doom and gloom, our awards celebrate outstanding achievements and innovation recognising businesses leading the way to improve healthcare and patient outcomes.”

Philip Salt, Chief Executive of Salts Healthcare said: “To say we are delighted with this award doesn’t come close to how the whole business feels at the moment. This is simply recognition of a huge journey by every single member of every single department in creating a world-class product. It has been a company-wide project showcasing design and creativity, internal teamwork, customer knowledge and empathy and superb manufacturing skills. Medical professionals love it, patients love it and so too now do our peers.”

Salts Healthcare will now compete in the National Medilink Awards in April 2018. Already recognised with this award as one of the best in the UK, the Birmingham-based firm with 20 offices, two distribution centres, a manufacturing hub and R&D facility throughout the UK and the distributors across the World will compete against seven other regional winners to be crowned 2017 Most Innovative Medical and Healthcare Company.
