Vector Signs Exclusive Medical Contract

Monday, August 15, 2011

Hutton's has signed an exclusive contract to supply medical equipment and to provide annual survey services for Vector Offshore Limited.

Vector's fleet of offshore support vessels operates out of Aberdeen and each uniquely carries two Autonomous Rescue and Recovery Craft (ARRC) which are capable of operating on their own, putting the company at the cutting edge of rescue and recovery in the North Sea.

Hutton's will deliver directly to the vessels as needed on a seven-day a week, 24hours a day basis as required.

In addition, Hutton's will ensure the ships' medical stores are up to date and comply with relevant regulations and will provide a removal service for out of date medicines.

Craig Warburton, HSE Advisor for Vector Offshore, explains they chose Hutton's to supply directly to their vessels: "As the Master of the vessel is ultimately responsible for the safe keeping of controlled drugs and maintaining stores onboard at the recommended level, removing the office from the chain simplifies matters".

John MacDonald, Hutton's Medical General Manager, said: "We are delighted that Hutton's is able to meet Vector's individual requirements. We are always happy to provide tailor-made services for our clients to suit their needs."

Hutton's Medical specialises in supplying a wide range of pharmaceutical and medical supplies to the shipping and offshore industries and holds appropriate Home Office and Wholesale Dealer licenses.

John explains: "Ensuring a ship's medical requirements and supplies are always up to date is a necessary and legal obligation for the well-being of those onboard and the denial of essential medical treatment can have very serious legal implications.

 "Staff at Hutton's Medical are fully conversant with the latest marine medical legislation and can provide an inspection, stock replenishment and certification service of a ship's medical locker anywhere in the world to ensure that customers' legal requirements are always maintained," he said.
