The contract was awarded following a competitive tender process, with Synergy Health offering a number of innovative solutions. The company’s CEO, UK and Ireland, Adrian Coward said: “Synergy Health is a trusted and proven partner to the NHS, continually striving for mutual success based on trust, innovation and accountability. It is deeply committed to delivering the highest quality in everything it does, going the extra mile to make a difference; solve problems and reduce risk. For Homerton we incorporated single use and reusable theatre consumables into the agreement, offering significant price benefits and added value, with the potential of increasing our supply of medical products.”
Synergy Health has been running the Trust’s sterile services department for a number of years, processing around 1 million items per year.

The company believes that improved business outcomes can be achieved by working collaboratively.
Synergy Health works with leading instrument suppliers on improving design and reducing tray defects and enjoys very low defect rates. A testament to the established relationship between Synergy Health and its customers are the high quality standards hospitals are continuing to experience, benefiting from exceptionally low defect and rejection rates from both sides of the partnership.
Adrian Coward continued: “This continued collaboration demonstrates the success of long-lasting relationships and confirms that public and private sectors can work together to provide excellent integrated services to patients. The innovative solutions offer value for money, quality enhancements and improved services, from both in-house suppliers and third party distributors.”
