Dorset Nursing Supplies - Medical supplies, medical equipment and incontinence supplies

Found 25th Nov 2014
I have used Dorset Nursing Supplies for a couple of years now to purchase items for an elderly relative. When purchasing from them directly (as a private individual), I am able to save ~50-70% on Age UK / local chemists / mobility suppliers. Furthermore, because of my relative's circumstances, the purchases are VAT exempt.

Delivery is extremely quick (often two business days) and traceable.

I realise this 'deal' is not going to be suitable for all, nor particularly fashionable, but the more people that know about this company, the better. Their prices are continually low and really can help you/your relatives to save money.

From their website: "We can help you with an extensive range of medical supplies from first aid kits, mobility aids, blood pressure monitors, hospital beds, to adult diapers, latex gloves, aprons, carpet cleaning and hand sanitiser, and if you can't find what you're looking for in the online store remember this is only a selection of what we sell, we have access to thousands of products from the main manufacturers in the medical supply industry such as Omron, Bunzl, Abena, Patterson Medical, Sunflower Medical, Labcold."

I do not work or have any relationship with this company whatsoever, other than being a customer. I have purchased from them approximately six times in the last two years, never had a problem. Saved my relative around £150 on personal products, compared to other providers. This originally came about as my sister purchased these items from a local store and like most people today, checked to see if I could purchase these items cheaper online - this is how I came across this company.

As I stated, this isn't fashionable compared to an iPad or chocolates from Tesco, but if this helps someone who needs it, then that was the purpose of my post.

BTW: I have nothing against chemists or Age UK etc. and the wonderful work they do. All I know is that some of the products they sell can be purchased cheaper and in specific cases, my relative saves ~£8 on a £12 product (compared to Age UK). Yes, she needs to buy a few packs, rather than one at a time and pay delivery, but at this saving, she can afford to do so.

Sorry, if this comes across as a rant, but I feel like I have a justifiable reason to defend this post and hopefully save at least one person some money - which I always thought was the purpose of this site.

I also am like you and have to purchase these supplies for a relative or two. Looking at this site the prices seem expensive to me and you can get cheaper at incontinencechoice.co.uk/. Check them out and see for yourself, you may end up saving some money

Have you tried asking your local surgery nursing team for an incontinence assessment. If you can tick all the right boxs you maybe able to qualify for Free incontinence products. Saves paying for them.

Thank-you for this additional information. Unfortunately the particular product my relative requires is not on the site suggested, however I hope it helps someone else.

Couldn't agree more! Unfortunately in my relative's case, the boxes were not all ticked and therefore needed to purchase privately. I hope the information you mention helps others.
