COVID-19 “Coronavirus” latest update

This is where we have shared our latest up-to-date information on how we managed our manufacture and supply of our WIVA™ clinical waste containers and our SHARPSGUARD® sharps containers.

As a key partner to the NHS, and the wider UK healthcare sector, we had many pressures to ensure supply over the last few months, you can read more about our work here – Supporting Nightingale Hospitals and Intensive Care Units.

We are now in a position to supply all our ranges and containers as normal.
