Frontier Medical expands its sharps disposal range

Frontier Medical Group has launched of a new 1.8L drug tariff container designed for the safe disposal of insulin and needle pens, as part of its Sharpsafe range (MediWales, 2017).

The Sharpsafe range starts at 0.2L boxes, going up to 30L protected access units. The new 1.8L container can hold twenty five needle pens vertically and features an aperture which allows users to remove needles if required.

Simon Jackson, Managing Director at Frontier Medical Group said “We’re continually working to expand and improve our offering to both patients and healthcare facilities, which is one of the key reasons we decided to launch this 1.8L Sharpsafe container. For many people who need to dispose of their pens or needles at home, the only options available are often large, ungainly sharps containers, and we wanted to change that.”

“These new boxes are much more convenient and whilst disposal is of course only one small part of someone’s day to day life, if we can help make it even a little bit easier, it really could make a significant difference. From a practical perspective, the 1.8L container is also much more efficient for users. In some larger boxes, pens fall diagonally and that greatly reduces their capacity, but with our 1.8L container they are held vertically. Again, it’s a small change from the existing products on the market but it makes a big difference for the end user.”

Frontier Medical Group provides affordable products to help patients avoid harm. It employees more than two hundred and forty people at its headquarters in Blackwood.
