Newcastle medical service provider forms international healthcare partnership

A Newcastle medical services provider has formed an international healthcare partnership to support the battle against the Covid-19 Omicron variant.

NPH Group has partnered with global healthcare equipment supplier BHA Medical and other research and implementation organisations, to support the rollout of Covid-19 testing in South Africa. The joint venture has already delivered over 4m Covid-19 tests globally.

Mark Philpott, CEO at NPH Group, said: “Our partnership with BHA Medical means we can deliver an end-to-end test, trace and manage service to businesses and organisations across the globe. The supply chain and logistical experience that BHA have, means we are always in an excellent position to deliver on our promises.

“Our jointly developed NPH iMed App interfaces directly with our Test Manager solution, giving businesses and organisations full control over their testing and monitoring requirements, helping them keep their employees safe. In the UK, the data feeds directly into Public Health England, and so it also means we are supporting the NHS by reducing the burden on them.”

Mark Schroder, CEO of BHA Medical Southern Africa, commented: “With offices in the UK, USA, China, Canada, Mauritius and South Africa, our approach to tackling Covid-19 has played a pivotal role in reopening industries globally.

“In South Africa, we are already helping numerous small, medium and large organisations with the highest quality screening protocols to protect staff, partners, suppliers and travellers.”

“Knowing where disease is and how it spreads is key to the prevention of ill-health. We want to help close the gap between unscreened and undiagnosed infectious diseases.”

“We have worked hard with NPH Group throughout the pandemic to supply millions of testing products and services in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. Our partnership began in the UK, where jointly we support Newcastle International Airport, Ocado and Virgin Voyages, amongst others. Most recently we have begun rolling out test and manage facilities in South Africa to support the public healthcare system in monitoring and controlling the virus.”

“Our vision is to enhance the health and wellbeing of developed and developing countries, promoting knowledge transfer and skills.”
