Conor Murray at Temple Street Children's Hospital, marking the 1st anniversary of the Medicare® Plasters 'Kiss them Better' campaign, March 2014

 

Medicare® Plasters is back ‘kissing them better’ with Temple Street Children’s Hospital in 2014. Thanks to Medicare® Plasters, Pharmacies nationwide and with your support we have raised €20,000 to date which is going towards buying vital and essential medical equipment for Temple Street Children’s Hospital such as ECG machines and Patient Monitors. Following this successful first year Medicare® Plasters are proud to continue to partner the ‘Kiss Them Better’ campaign for another year!

 
Once again, Conor Murray took time out recently from his busy International Rugby duties to visit Temple Street Children’s Hospital where he met sick children from around the country together with their parents.  A big shout out to Conor Murray, to the children of Temple Street Hospital and to all their Staff for creating a very special and memorable afternoon.
 
‘Kiss them better’ Medicare® Plasters can be found in participating Pharmacies nationwide and for every special pack of Medicare® Plasters bought, Fleming Medical is making a donation to Temple Street Children’s hospital. This year, to raise further awareness, we’ve taken our campaign to national Radio on RTE 1 and 2fm from 24th February to 9th March 2014 and on several local radio stations such as Limerick Live95fm, Cork 96fm and Galway Bay FM.  
 
So listen out to a radio station near you and discover how you too can make a difference by buying a pack of Medicare® Plasters with the ‘Kiss them better’ logo in any participating Pharmacy nationwide or by donating directly online at www.kissthembetter.ie 
 
A huge thank you to all the participating Pharmacies who have joined forces with Medicare® plasters in supporting this worthy campaign.

Fleming Medical Goes Global at the Arab Health Show in Dubai

Fleming Medical Goes Global at the Arab Health Show in Dubai

For a second time Fleming Medical was rubbing shoulders with Global industry leaders, distributors and international visitors at the Arab Health exhibition & congress in Dubai

 

 

For a second time Fleming Medical was rubbing shoulders with Global industry leaders, distributors and international visitors at the Arab Health exhibition & congress in Dubai.
 
Each year the Arab Health Exhibition and Congress welcomes thousands of exhibitors and visitors across the healthcare industry including medical manufacturers & medical device distributors. It also attracts a growing and diverse international participation from healthcare and medical professionals.
 
As a successful and industry recognised leader & distributor of medical devices in Ireland, the Fleming Medical representatives, which included our MD, Mark Fleming,  had a busy week welcoming visitors to our stand and discussing business with potential distributors and customers from around the globe.  The quality of the Medicare® products on display left no doubt that Fleming Medical is an industry leader when it comes to Sport Supports, Foot care and First Aid products.  
 
Attracting pharmacy distributors from as far away as Nigeria, Kenya and Holland means these are now all places where the Fleming Medical Medicare® brand of products can be found delivering quality products to local pharmacies and health care professionals.  
 
“It was a very worthwhile trip’, says Keith Sheridan, Fleming Medical Key Accounts Manager, ‘where we got to meet with new distributors and pharmacy groups and where the potential for global opportunities were brought together in one place and we got to display our quality products to an international audience.” 
 
And so another successful year in Dubai for Fleming Medical where Medicare® continues to grow an Irish brand on the international stage.

Fleming Medical & Limerick GAA

Fleming Medical & Limerick GAA

Fleming Medical under the Medicare brand, are proud to announce its new and exciting partnership with all the Limerick teams in both Hurling and Football by sponsoring the first aid care of the players. 

 

There is nothing like the sound of the slither kissing the hurl on a fine summer’s day in any county across Ireland. Or the roar of the spectators as the football is thrown in to mark the start of yet another pulsating game.  Such are the highs and lows of a season well spent on any GAA pitch up and down the country that welcomes local communities to indulge in the national obsession of the sport of GAA. And there is nowhere more passionate about its sporting life than Limerick GAA with its 67 Clubs, 12,600 members and 8,400 Players.

Keeping players safe from injury is a crucial part of any team strategy but we all know that from time to time ‘accidents’ and ‘incidents’ happen and a quick response from team doctors and physiotherapists  is as important as any game tactic. 

To this end, Fleming Medical under the Medicare® brand, are proud to announce its new and exciting partnership with all the Limerick teams in both Hurling and Football by sponsoring the first aid care of the players.

In doing this Medicare® will be the official supplier of all medical & first aid supplies for Limerick GAA this year.  This is a special sponsorship for Fleming Medical as we at Fleming Medical have been part of the local community in Limerick for the past 27 years, creating and supporting local enterprise as a proud Limerick company.

The GAA sporting synergy of local and Irish is a great fit for Fleming Medical and together we look forward to an exciting year of competitive games where Limerick and Fleming Medical are the winners.

Winners of the ‘Performance in Sport Awards’ 2013 announced

 

                 

The 2013 Performance in Sport Awards’

winners were announced on December 16th.

 

 

For the last year Fleming Medical has been working closely with Limerick Sports Partnership on a fantastic initiative, providing sponsorship for the ‘Performance in Sport Award’. This award honours the best local sporting performance on a monthly basis and is open to all 700 clubs in Limerick City and County. A winner is chosen every month and are presented with a €500 voucher towards the purchase of a Cardiac Science Powerheart AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and a sports first aid kit worth €60. 

 

County Limerick Local Sports Partnership (CLLSP) Coordinator, Phelim Macken said the purpose of the award scheme is to “recognise the valuable contribution made by sporting clubs and organisations to community life throughout Limerick.” Fleming Medical were keen to get involved in this important initiative to make it easier for the clubs of the county to be better prepared to tackle cardiac arrest and to give something back to our loyal local customer base.

 

Cardiac arrest is responsible for up to 400,000 deaths in adults in Europe every year. Many of these people could have been saved if they had access to an AED within the first few minutes of the incident occuring. This award raises much needed awareness of the importance of having AEDs in sporting facilities and of general best practice in first aid as well as rewarding sporting excellence. The sporting organisations and clubs of Limerick have been very supportive of Fleming Medical and our Medicare brand of sports first aid and this is the latest in a long line of initiatives to give something back to the community.

 

On Monday December 16th, the monthly winners for 2013 attended the (CLLSP) annual awards ceremony for an enjoyable evening in the County Hall Dooradoyle. Here, the sporting performance of the year was presented with the first prize of an AED sponsored by Fleming Medical, an AED training evening for 8 people worth €600 and a perpetual trophy. The well-deserved  winners of this prestigious award were Jamie and Jason Harty from Rathkeale Boxing Club. Jamie and Jason are hard-working individuals both in and out of the gym and deserving winners of this year’s award.

 

Second place and a €500 Medicare voucher was awarded to Autumn Collins and Newcastle West Cycling Club , while third place was awarded to Sarah Lavin and Emerald Athletics Club, who won a €250 Medicare voucher.

 

Fleming Medical would to take this opportunity to congratulate all our winners for 2013 and are looking forward to continuing to work with County Limerick Local Sports Partnership (CLLSP) in 2014.

FLEMING MEDICAL LTD SCHILLER AT-102 TRAINING SESSIONS

On Wednesday Otmar spent some time with the service team in Limerick, up skilling and troubleshooting in order to make our service to our customers even more efficient in the future.

On Thursday we ran 2 training seminars for our customers which saw 17 biomedical engineers and cardiac technicians from 8 hospitals attend in Limerick and Cork. These were excellent technical sessions which will help the hospitals who take the Schiller AT-102 on board to keep them in commission for as long as possible and the feedback was excellent from all who attended.

Many thanks to Ronan Nagle who kindly hosted the Cork session in the education rooms in CUH, to Niall O’Halloran our service engineer for all his work in making things run as smoothly as they did and to Schiller for letting us bring the excellent Otmar to Ireland so we could all benefit from his expertise.

Campaign for Temple Street Childrens Hospital. 
Our local MUNSTER, Ireland and Lions rugby star Conor Murray took some 
time from his busy pre-season training

 

Our local MUNSTER, Ireland and Lions rugby star Conor Murray took some time from his busy pre-season training to met some of his youngest fans to support a campaign aimed to help buy emergency hospital equipment. The scrum-half visited Temple Street Children's University Hospital in Dublin and toured the wards, where he met eight-year-old Luke Concannon from Lucan (main pic). Murray urged Irish families to support the hospital's 'KissThem Better' campaign. For every pack of Medicare plasters bought from pharmacies around the country, Medicare will make a donation to Temple Street's emergency equipment fund. All money raised will go towards the purchase and upgrade of much needed equipment for the children's wards such as monitors, ventilators, incubators and dialysis machines.
