The CREST (Cancer Research Excellence in Surgical Trials) Award is one part of an initiative to increase the engagement of surgeons in the NCRI and NIHR CRN: Cancer, to increase the number of surgical trials and to increase the percentage of patients with newly diagnosed tumours who are approached about entering clinical trials.
The New “KLEEN” all-in-one Blade Management System compliments the existing range of safety products available from Swann-Morton in their efforts to support safe passing protocols and sharps injury reduction amongst Health Care Workers.
The system which incorporates a quality Swann-Morton blade is designed to operate with most standard surgical handles already in the circulation within the Hospital system thus minimising disruption and cost during the conversion process. The system comprises two injection moulded plastic parts which encapsulates a standard blade and protects surgical staff from sustaining a potential sharps injury whilst attaching or removing the blade from a handle.
This years coverted Silver Scalpel Award sponsored by Swann-Morton was presented at a Charity Gala Dinner to the grateful 2014 recipient Mr. Michael Levelle Jones a consultant Plastic Surgeon from Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.
