We are proud to be working with Nicci Aylward-Wotton, bringing the technologies to the community, and reducing the risk of pressure ulcers.

The work that Nicci Aylward-Wotton has been doing in Cornwall, with the Foresite PT system, has made its way to The Health Foundation website: http://www.health.org.uk/newsletter/four-projects-testing-innovations-improve-care-older-people. Her work is the first in an article of four projects about innovations to improve the care for older people.

Environmental management system standards and Sumed

  • 0

Sumed has been recommended for accreditation after we met the 2015 Environmental Management System standards (ISO14001:2015).

 ISO 14001:2015 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system and can be certified to. It maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow to set up an effective environmental management system. It can be used by any organisation regardless of its activity or sector.

Using ISO 14001:2015 can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

Sumed are currently certified to ISO 9001: 2008, and we are in the midst of intergrating our management systems to incorporate ISO 13485: 2012, ISO 14001: 2015, and ISO 9001: 2015.

We hope to be certified by this spring!

See below the scope of our integrated quality and environmental management system: for more detail see the policies attached.


The scope of the QMS applies to the manufacture, supply and distribution of medical devices for the treatment and prevention of chronic wounds, including wheelchairs and beds for medical use. The supply, manufacture, clean and repair of products for the prevention of and treatment of chronic wounds and the supply and calibration of pressure monitoring devices.

The scope of the EMS includes all activities, products and services carried out at Sumed’s manufacturing and warehouse facility based in Hadfield, Glossop.

Our EMS includes the needs and expectations of interested parties including compliance obligations and takes into account external and internal issues, which may affect the intended outcomes of the management system. 


Doing our part for the environment

  • 0

As a supplier and manufacturer of quality branded products and services to healthcare professionals designed for the healing and maintenance of healthy skin Sumed is committed to running its business in a responsible, environmentally sound and sustainable manner.

We recognise that our processes and products have both direct and indirect environmental impact; we will identify the potential for adverse impacts and implement effective ways to eliminate them, or reduce them to an acceptable level. To this end we will continue to actively encourage our suppliers and subcontractors to work with us in this regard.

Looking after the environment is not only our legal duty but the moral duty of us all. Throughout our operations we will fulfil our compliance obligations as a minimum requirement in the interest of protecting the environment and preventing pollution. To assist in this objective, we will align our environmental management system (EMS) to the requirements of the internationally recognised environmental management system Standard ISO 14001.
