Urinary Catheter Adhesion Inhibition System
The new framework starts on 10 October 2022, will run for 16 months and ends on 20 February 2024. There is an option to extend for an additional 3 months plus 3 months although this will be brought in line for the merge with the Urology and Stoma framework in February 2024.
This new framework is designed to provide new/innovative products and has come through the Healthtech Connect Innovation route with NICE guidance.
There is one lot on this new framework:
- Lot 1: Urinary Catheter Adhesion Inhibition System
UroShield is a disposable ultrasound device designed to reduce the risk of catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). It reduces bacterial colonisation and biofilm formation on indwelling urinary catheters.
Ultimately translating into improved outcomes for patients and carers; less antibiotics, reduced catheter changes/washouts and reduced hospital visits, therefore a reduction in nursing time/bed days and ambulance transfers.
