Medequip to launch its first hospital retail store in Derby NHS Trust this January
Community equipment services provider Medequip is set to expand its retail presence with the opening of its first hospital retail store, located in the Kings Treatment Centre of the Royal Derby Hospital.
Launching on the 13th January, the new retail outlet will sell an extensive range of independent living aids and mobility products, including riser recliner chairs, rollators, overbed tables, shower chairs, perching stools and many smaller aids to daily living.
The new Medequip store in the hospital will work alongside the company’s growing e-commerce retail proposition, Manage at Home, with the CES provider highlighting that retail staff in the new shop can help provide customers with assistance to access the company’s extensive online portfolio of 3,000 products.
Whilst not the first physical retail presence for the company, with Medequip already operating retail areas at its depot centres and two Independent Living Centres, the Royal Derby Hospital store does mark the first retail space for the company embedded within an NHS.
The strategically located hospital store will provide Medequip with an opportunity to reach customers often at the point when they will first discover they need a mobility or independent living product, enabling them to raise awareness of the different solutions available on the market which many may not be aware of.
The launch of the new store comes following a busy year for Medequip, which saw it relaunch its Manage at Home website, including incorporating Disabled Living Foundation’s AskSARA tool, alongside expanding its TECS capabilities with the acquisition of County Careline Services.
