Drivers of the Year

NRS Healthcare has recently announced the winners of our internal Driver of the Year competition, designed to ensure and encourage top notch driving skills and abilities amongst our delivery and collection drivers.

Alison Owen, Fleet Manager, tells us more: "Being a business dedicated to delivering important equipment on time to vulnerable people, our drivers play a critical role in our success. Over the past 18 months we have implemented a new assessment scheme to better support our drivers and ensure they have the highest level of driving skill and safety. Having excellent drivers with smart vans reflects on how the general public sees NRS Healthcare as a whole."

"The assessments culminated in 61 colleagues being entered into our first Driver of the Year competition. To be eligible to enter, these drivers had to have no fault accidents in the past 12 months, have maintained a gold standard on their driver assessments, and always keep their vans clean and presentable."

"Everyone who entered the competition has also been rewarded £100 each, with the 3 winners drawn out of a hat to win the gold, silver and bronze cash prizes. I would like to congratulate them on their efforts and ask them to keep up the good work!"

Turning Over a New Page

new nrs healthcare catalogue 2015

The new NRS Healthcare catalogue has been launched with a brand new look! The catalogue promotes the product division's huge range offered for direct purchase by professional healthcare, trade and international customers.

Occupational Therapists (OTs) are the main users of the catalogue, so the new design was largely based around their needs. OTs usually carry the catalogue around on visits to clients, so this year the number of pages was reduced to make it slimmer and lighter to carry – but still retaining as many great products.

Emma Glover, Marketing Communications Executive, comments “We have completely revamped the catalogue this year as a result of our research with OTs. It was fully deconstructed then put back together again to create a clinical and professional looking catalogue with excellent content."

Steve Kennedy, Commercial Director, said “I am thrilled with the new catalogue design and the response we've had so far. We have seen a large increase in orders in both the professional and trade channels and this will only continue as OTs and mobility dealers continue to use the catalogue through the coming year."

Helping our Local Community in Herefordshire

Wheelchair donated to St Peters Church in Bromyard Herefordshire

We are always looking to help local charities and communities when we can, so when we received a request to donate a wheelchair to St Peter's Church in Bromyard, Herefordshire, we were happy to oblige. The existing wheelchair used at the Church was damaged, with holes in the material and missing parts - but desperately needed.

Rev. Clive Evans said after receiving the wheelchair: "We are very grateful for the generous donation of this wheelchair from NRS Healthcare. It will make life much more comfortable and a lot safer for the members of our congregation who rely on a wheelchair for getting to services and other church functions each week."
