Asteral Protect goes from strength-to-strength

Asteral, the vendor-independent managed equipment service company for the NHS, has now secured ten Trust and Hospital customers to its Asteral Protect maintenance service, launched in April 2012.

Asteral Protect is a fully managed maintenance service which provides premium support for a wide range of critical medical equipment and offers a single point-of-contact, guaranteed uptime and enhanced value-for-money.
New customers already benefitting from Asteral Protect include: The Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, The Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust and Stockport NHS Foundation Trust.

Jason Long, Asteral Business Development Director, says, “NHS Trusts are continually facing financial challenges and are forced to look for more ways of reducing their non-pay spend including their outsourced maintenance services.”

“Asteral Protect provides a holistic solution which delivers savings through optimised multi-vendor service arrangements with measurable efficiency gains, high-quality services and excellent equipment availability. Supporting the NHS in the delivery of patient care remains Asteral’s top priority and our Asteral Protect product is another example of this continued commitment.”
