Oakmed was first formed in 1998 from a group of companies with an extensive history of working within the healthcare industry, particularly within stoma and wound care. Our ultimate aim is to provide ostomates and healthcare professionals with an alternative option and an increased choice of products and services.
We are now part of the GHD-Group which combines the production, logistics and supply of medical aids – particularly stoma, continence and wound care – into one holistic service.
Salts Healthcare is one of the UK’s oldest, family-run companies that has grown to become a highly successful international medical device manufacturer. Today, our family is more diverse than ever, but our dedication to designing life-changing products remains the same.
Salts Healthcare invests heavily in research and development and works with healthcare professionals and educational facilities to continually improve and innovate, designing products that truly change lives.
There are many conditions which may result in the need for stoma formation including ulcerative colitis, Crohns disease and bowel or bladder cancer. Whatever the reason, if you’re looking for more information and support on living with a stoma, visit our Your Stoma area for everything from changing a stoma bag through to dietary and relationship advice.
We pride ourselves on developing ostomy products which offer quality of life for those people living with a stoma. There are 3 main types of stoma; a colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy, and we offer products for them all. Our stoma bags include one and two-piece systems as either drainable or closed and one-piece urostomy bags. As well as ostomy bags, we also offer a range of additional products, including our skin barrier film wipes, mouldable seals, adhesive remover sprays and many more.
