HSL (Hospital Services Limited)

Hospital Services Limited (“HSL”) is a specialist distributor of medical supplies and surgical equipment and consumable products, servicing public and private hospitals across the UK and Ireland.

With a staff of 75 active in the market and based at offices in Belfast, Dublin and Nottingham, HSL is one of the largest privately-owned distributors supplying the health sector. In addition to supplying market leading technologies and solutions to our customers, HSL’s team provides on-going technical and clinical support to the end-user of our products.  HSL partners exclusively with several world-class manufacturers across a number of disciplines including, to name just a few, Richard Wolf and KLS Martin (general and electro-surgery), Hologic (mammography), Shimadzu and Canon (radiology), Fujifilm and Medwork (endoscopy), and Haag-Streit and Ziemer (ophthalmology).

With the unwelcome intervention of the Covid-19 Pandemic HSL was approached by the HSE in Ireland and the NHS in N. Ireland to help in the sourcing of PPE from reliable manufacturing partners across the globe. HSL were able to quickly turn on a reliable supply chain solution for Masks and Gowns of various types and these were gratefully received by hospitals such as St. James, Altnagelvin, The Mater and many more besides.

With the unwelcome intervention of the Covid-19 Pandemic HSL was approached by the HSE in Ireland and the NHS in N.

Whilst HSL had long established partnerships, some products were precluded from export from manufacturers in the US and China. This presented a challenge which HSL decided to overcome by stepping in to the manufacturing space with particular reference to Face Shields. Whilst aware that this product was being produced in some small numbers by well-intentioned actors it was also apparent to HSL that the proper accreditations needed to be observed for larger volume production irrespective of the market.

HSL designed and manufactured a Face Shield that met the BSI 2020/403 eye and face protection specification, Technical Specification to satisfy Annex II of the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425. For HSL this was a critical element of the project as we viewed the market to be more than a reach into Irish and UK healthcare sector. With a capacity to manufacture over 250,000 per week HSL has the capability to satisfy demand from all markets.
