Recognising a year of innovation in healthcare

The coronavirus pandemic has been an extremely challenging time for the healthcare industry, which is why it’s important to recognise and encourage those who have set out to do more.

GAMA Healthcare was founded by two doctors, Dr Guy Braverman and Dr Allen Hanouka, to help save and improve lives. Together they saw a need for clinically proven infection prevention products. Today, their Clinell, Carell and Contiplan product ranges protect people in healthcare, businesses and homes across 60 countries.

A company at the cutting edge of infection prevention technology specialising in the manufacture and distribution of revolutionary IPC products, GAMA Healthcare set out a number of innovations to help those most affected and vulnerable to Covid-19.

The Clinell Universal Wipes are effective against the virus that causes Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in just 30 seconds of contact time. Already used to keep surfaces and equipment safe in 9 out of 10 NHS hospitals, GAMA Healthcare’s products were tested and validated against the SARS-CoV-2 by an independent, accredited lab with test results shared for the public to view and download from its website.

And 2020 also saw the launch of Rediroom into the NHS. Assembling in just under five minutes, the room allows safe isolation to control further risk of infection. GAMA Healthcare also launched Violet UV Room Sanitiser, a unique technology to give extra protection to final cleaning. Throughout the year, the team provided demonstrations of Rediroom and the Violet UV Room Sanitiser to help the fight against the Covid-19 virus.

And that’s not all. GAMA Healthcare continued its contribution to charitable causes with a donation of £50,000 to UNICEF’s Save Generation Covid Appeal, £50,000 of fundraising towards Sepsis UK Trust and £1,320 raised to provide free meals for key workers in the NHS. GAMA Healthcare supplied products to IHG hotels who were involved in working with GLA to house homeless people over Christmas. A 1,000 goodie bags were also supplied at Crisis to homeless people over Christmas time, with products proven to kill Covid-19 and remove germs and bacteria to help support healthy hygiene. 

Ian Richards, Head of Crisis at Christmas, said: “I am stunned by the big-heartedness of our supporters and especially at Christmas time. I would like to thank GAMA Healthcare for their donation of Clinell Universal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Spray, which helps us provide homeless people with vital support at Christmas.”
