Conti wipes deliver CIP savings for Calderdale & Huddersfield

Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust are realising significant savings through the introduction of the new maceratable Conti Washcloth within the trust as part of their ongoing Cost Improvement Programme (CIP).

Synergy Health’s maceratable patient wipe has been used at Huddersfield Royal Hospital for over four years, however when the new Conti Washcloth was introduced, the trust decided to carry out a thorough product evaluation, with a view of standardising their wipes usage across the trust. This involved replacing the alternative non-maceratable wipes they were using at Calderdale Royal Hospital.

“After the evaluation, the Conti Washcloth was preferred as it was thicker, more absorbent and staff used less in comparison.” said Jaqui Yuen, System and Process Manager. “This standardisation across both hospitals will deliver a saving to the trust of over £8,000 per year.”

“Synergy Health have been extremely pro-active and worked closely with us during both the evaluation and implementation stage, minimising the impact on the wards as much as possible.”

Offering over 18% savings, Synergy Health’s new Conti Washcloth is the most cost-effective maceratable patient wipe via NHS Supply Chain, whilst also being independently tested by leading macerator manufacturers, providing users with confidence that the wipes are fully maceratable and won't cause costly macerator blockages.

As the market-leading brand in the UK for over 35 years, Conti wipes are used widely across the UK, with an increasing number of Trusts choosing to switch to a maceratable wipe.

“Being able to make a saving without having to switch supplier made the whole process a lot smoother.” added Jaqui Yuen.  “Staff like the Conti wipes and have confidence that they perform well and help them deliver quality patient care.”

As part of Synergy Health’s commitment to working in partnership with the NHS, we are continuing to supporting NHS procurement teams across the UK to deliver savings at a time when there is increasing pressure to reduce costs whilst also improving the quality of care patients receive.
