RMS Wins at the NHS Excellence in Supply Awards

RMS, the radiology management business, has won the Best Small Business Award at the North West Excellence in Supply Awards. They were also ‘Highly Commended’ in the competitive Support Services category.
The Excellence in Supply Awards promote and celebrate private sector organisations working in partnership with the NHS to deliver high quality, effective and efficient patient care; helping the health service to do more for less.

The judges for the Small Business award were looking for companies to demonstrate consistent and strong financial performance, whilst also making a significant contribution to the Trusts they work with.

RMS was also Highly Commended in the Support Services category, which highlights private sector companies who provide support to the NHS to help maintain the quality of service.

Michael Lancaster, Commercial Director, commented “We are delighted that RMS has been recognised for the cost savings we have made across the Trusts that we work with. Our innovative approach to helping NHS radiology departments reduce their scanning waiting lists means that patients can be quickly scanned and diagnosed. The Small Business Award means a lot to us as we have worked hard to achieve financial growth for the company.”

RMS has customers across the Northwest and Wales. The business works with Trusts to extend the opening hours of a radiology department using existing in-house CT, MRI and Ultrasound equipment and providing additional, highly qualified radiographers. This can see a radiology department opening for an additional 3 to 5 hours a day, achieving an extra 250 to 450 scans a month.
