NRS is a leading supplier of mobility equipment and disability aids, and a 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, through retail partners such as Boots and has a growing distribution network outside of the UK. A smaller division provides clinical services to public sector customers and supports its offering to local authorities.
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. The company is further upgrading its digital offering to become the leader at “Enabling Independence Everyday”, through best-in-class websites, products and an approach to sales that leverages its large network of Occupational Therapists.
