Distinctive Medical has been working with NHS and Private Hospitals for over 20 years. We specialise in mobile storage, trolleys and labelling solutions unique to Theatres and Anaesthetics.

Following the NAP4 audit several years ago, we were the first company to develop a dedicated “difficult airway trolley” for Anaesthetics. As the trolley has evolved and the labelling for the trolley evolved to reflect the latest guideline updates, it is still as popular as ever.

Following the recent changes, we have also launched our “slimline” airway trolley, this is great for those departments who perhaps have a smaller kit requirement or limited space.

A lot of you will recognise the drug syringe labels you use on a daily basis, did you know we have one of the best labelling systems available, it is one of the most cost-effective and infection friendly systems available today.
