NRS is a leading supplier of mobility equipment and disability aids and provider of associated services helping the elderly and disabled live independently in their own homes. The group is the exclusive outsourced provider for a large number of local authorities across the UK. It also sells a range of over 3,500 products directly to millions of consumers via online channels. A smaller division provides clinical services to public sector customers.
NRS’s community products range from simple aids, such as bed rails, through to complex products, such as hoists. This daily-living support allows people to live independently longer and delays the point at which the users require more expensive residential or hospital care, enabling the NHS to reduce costs and to alleviate hospital overcrowding.
Graphite is supporting NRS’s growth across all of its divisions, both organically and with further acquisitions, with a focus on self-pay and clinical services. In August 2020, NRS acquired Able 2, a provider of Occupational Therapy assessments to Local Authorities. We are also helping the company further develop its digital strategy and IT systems, including a rebranding and re-platforming of its direct-to-consumer websites.
