Salisbury District Hospital
Salisbury District Hospital is run by Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust and forms part of the government’s secondary healthcare structure providing high-quality healthcare with improved services, promoting efficient spending. It provides a wide range of clinical care which includes general, acute and emergency services to approximately 225,000 people across Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire.
At DDC Dolphin we are committed to continual engineering innovation, which is how we came to develop the environmentally friendly Pulpmatic Eco macerator, with the capability of modifying and reducing water consumption. Thanks to a long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship with Salisbury District Hospital, we approached them and offered to install the new model for research and testing purposes. They agreed and said they were happy to help and support us with the installation and testing of the new model.
The machine performed extremely well with no reported blockages or faults despite the lower water consumption, and as a result of the successful trial, Salisbury District Hospital are taking the next step of ensuring that this new and improved model stays on site on a permanent basis.
“Our relationship with DDC Dolphin goes from strength to strength. We were glad to support DDC Dolphin with the commissioning and testing of the Pulpmatic Eco and we were all delighted with the outcome. We already have a number of their Pulpmatic macerators in the hospital which are supported and maintained by DDC Dolphin and will be adding the new model to our inventory.”
