Dakota Awarded Wristband & Label Contract Renewal With HCA Healthcare UK

30th November 2023

Dakota Integrated Solutions Ltd is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a two-year contract renewal with leading private healthcare provider HCA Healthcare UK to continue to supply its wristbands and labels.

The contract renewal encompasses both regular and custom wristbands as well as specimen and pharmacy labels for mobile and desktop printers.

HCA is the largest private healthcare provider in the world and the only private hospital group to have the highest level of critical care beds in all its facilities. Since entering the UK healthcare market in 1995, HCA has since built up a world-class network of over 30 facilities in London and Manchester, with its latest venture opening in Birmingham in 2023.

Danielle Gregory, Account Manager for Healthcare Solutions at Dakota comments, “We have been supplying HCA with printing consumables for the last ten years, so this two-year contract renewal is a fantastic accolade for us as a business. HCA’s network of facilities throughout the world is second-to-none, so we are delighted to be working alongside such a prestigious enterprise that is dedicated to providing high quality, compassionate care for its patients, from clinical research, primary care, outpatient and day-case treatment, through to complex and urgent care.”

The benefits of Dakota’s printing consumables contracts are far-reaching, enabling reductions in delivery and carriage charges, fixed pricing for the contract duration in order to safeguard against price increases, a fully managed stock control service and stock holding facilities for product call-offs.

Alex Cockburn, Sourcing Specialist at HCA comments, “The Dakota solution and support has worked extremely well for HCA over the duration of the last two-year contract. When reviewing the market in order to renew the contract for a further two years, Dakota performed exceptionally well yet again, so we are delighted to award the renewal to them.”
