NeedleDock was launched after a UK healthcare professional noticed a significant number of accidents were caused as a result of needle disposal; these often, unreported incidents presented substantial health risks and, as a result, he felt compelled to find a solution. Further research confirmed that used needles account for hundreds of thousands of accidents every year, with each injury being potentially life-changing.
After extensive discussions with a broad range of healthcare professionals, the necessity for NeedleDock became apparent: existing products were not meeting the needs of staff and simultaneously putting them at an unnecessary and preventable risk within their workplace.
Thanks to involvement from customer feedback groups, hospital management and stakeholders, our team were able to create an innovative and, most importantly, safe product, made for healthcare professionals and significantly influenced by them.
Through valuable additional consumer insights and working closely with frontline healthcare professionals, we have created what we believe to be the safest, easiest and most cost-effective means of disposing of used needles. NeedleDock is a simple solution, a unique innovation and a patented product.
At NeedleDock we truly care about healthcare staff and this is why we have carefully developed a product we believe will be of genuine benefit. NeedleDock is a step-change in how used needles are disposed of.
We have a clear vision for our company. We want to protect Healthcare Professionals. We believe that everyone has the right to be protected from injury and disease at work. To do that:
- We focus on our customers
- We keep it simple
NeedleDock will continue to work closely with healthcare professionals and meet their unmet needs with new products and services.
We will work with healthcare providers to find better and more-cost effective solutions.
We will be responsible for developing solutions that have a positive impact on our environment.
We will challenge existing ways of working to further our goals to:
Protect Staff – Reduce Waste – Cut Costs
