Platts & Nisbett work with surgeons to build long lasting partnerships for the future. By using their clinical expertise and our manufacturing knowledge we can bring ideas to life, producing surgical instruments of the highest standard. This service was of interest to Mr David Stanley and Mr Deepthi Nandan Adla (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust), who contacted us regarding a new Shoulder and Elbow Revision Kit they wished to develop.
Platts & Nisbett is the only British Surgical Instrument Manufacturer with the official Made in Britain accreditation, and we are proud of it!
The Made in Britain marque is only accredited to businesses who can prove they are selling goods which have been truly manufactured in Britain.
Spire Healthcare has 39 hospitals & 1 specialist cancer centre across the UK. As they purchase Platts & Nisbett surgical instruments they contacted us to see if they could take part in a factory tour to see how the instruments are made. As we are the only UK Surgical Instrument Manufacturer with the official Made In Britain Accreditation, our factory tours are highly recommended. They are a real eye opener to anyone working with surgical instruments, for example SSD Staff, Theatre Staff, Procurement, Surgeons, Nurses etc.
