The Daniels Healthcare Story

Founded in 1939, Daniels Healthcare, was a family-run business which specialised in the manufacture and sale of medical devices in hospitals.

In the 1980s, Daniels expanded to include the sale of sharps containers and went on to develop its own portfolio of containers based on years of experience. By 2003 it launched another sharps container range called SHARPSGUARD®, one of the most trusted sharps container series on the market, and introduced colour-coded lids which allowed customers to easily and safely segregate waste and was adopted as best practice by the Ministry of Health.

This focus on product safety, saw Daniels become a dedicated advocate of safety-first for front-line staff and patients and grow to offer free audits, training and educational resources to customers.

Daniels also came to be a key supporter of the Infection Prevention Society (IPS), including exhibiting at its UK conference every year since 2007, and collaborating with the exceptional professionals working in the infection prevention sector.

As well as working with IPS groups to increase understanding of how social media can improve knowledge sharing among colleagues, Daniels also incorporated social media into its communication activities, and through digital channels found many more opportunities for collaboration as well as backing lots of worthwhile causes like Rotary Clubs, prostate cancer initiatives and fundraisers for health awareness days.

In 2016, Daniels Healthcare became part of Mauser Packaging Solutions, a world-leading company in industrial packaging. In particular, this meant that it could now provide specialised Mauser-produced WIVA™ clinical waste containers to the NHS and healthcare customers in the UK and Europe in addition to its well-known product ranges.
