We regularly work alongside our colleagues in the NHS to jointly identify a range of products that are currently expensive and could do with Spirit’s help to make them more affordable.
While wound care is typically a complex and costly category, our product range is designed to suit most patient care needs and is both simple and cost effective. Find out more from our product list below or learn how we help roll out these products to patients and manage the transition with Spirit Implement.
The Spirit wound care selection replaces dozens of product lines with a catch-all range estimated to save the NHS £10m per annum¹ on like-for-like products.
Our medicines optimisation team will work with you to realise the savings that can be made by adding our extensive range of high quality, cost effective wound care products to your dressing formulary.
We are experts at implementing change and offer a bespoke active implementation programme to support formulary change.
