Shaping the Future of Urology Prescribing
Prescribing catheters, sheaths and urine bags costs the NHS over £232m per annum¹. It is estimated that 14 million people in the UK are living with some form of bladder problem² and that over 50% of patients in care homes have bladder problems, with incontinence being a significant reason for care home admissions3. We believe this is an area that can be prescribed more efficiently.
Our SpiritCare Urology range is estimated to save the NHS £70m on like-for-like products⁴. Check out the full range of products and their prices below. Alternatively, you can learn how we successfully implement these to patients and manage every aspect of the transition through Spirit Implement.
