Operating all over the UK, Fairford Medical provides cost-effective and suitable transportable Tier 1 Medical Imaging technology for the benefit of NHS and private healthcare operators. Founded in 2016, early success fuelled an ambition to expand.
Ensuring the highest standards for operational efficiency
Increasing operational efficiency and consistency were key to Fairford Medical's plans for driving business growth and expanding nationwide coverage.
How Fairford Medical increased operational efficiency
Driving a sustainable strategy for success
Fairford Medical's management team had recognized the reactive nature of their business operations. Identifying untapped business opportunities in the UK, they decided to get on the front foot.
When looking for opportunities to be able to expand their client base, Fairford Medical took the strategic decision to be on an NHS Framework. This would enable them to work with the NHS Trusts more easily, allowing them to increase their customer base. To get on the NHS Framework, they needed to meet the requirements of medical equipment suppliers.
Making efficiency and standardization the engine for growth
Setting out in clear detail what's needed to implement and scale a quality management system, BS EN ISO 9001 is the most widely recognized quality management standard in the world.
It laid a standardized foundation for Fairford Medical to continuously measure and improve their performance. Its processes could be adapted to meet their needs as a small, growing business, helping to organize every element of their operations to become more efficient and organized. This has now grown to cover every aspect of Fairford's business.
Navigating a future based on trust and quality
Alongside securing a successful increase in bookings, Fairfield has seen other benefits after meeting the requirements to be on the NHS Framework:
Putting efficiency at the heart of greater choice in healthcare provision
QMS accreditation meant Fairford Medical was able to rent to the NHS directly, which led to a huge increase in demand:
350% increase in rentals directly to NHS trusts
18 different mobile imaging technology trailers and support vehicle types in operation
