Prometheus Medical welcomes HRH The Duke of Gloucester to its Head Office in Herefordshire.

His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester last week visited the company to present The Queen's Award for Enterprise for Innovation for the second time.

Hope-Under-Dinmore, 10th October 2019

Prometheus Medical, a leading supplier of pre hospital emergency care equipment and training, last week welcomed His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester to its Head Office in Hope-Under-Dinmore, Herefordshire. The visit saw Prometheus Medical officially presented with the Queen's Award for Enterprise for Innovation 2019, an accolade awarded to the company for the development of the Prometheus Pelvic Splint®

Recognised as the UK's highest honour for business success, Prometheus Medical has previously received the award in 2015 for the design, development and establishment of the Russell Chest Seal®. This year, Prometheus Medical has been recognised for the Prometheus Pelvic Splint. The Prometheus Pelvic Splint has been designed to be applied in the pre-hospital environment, allowing a fractured pelvis to be stabilised whilst providing a very cost-effective solution for healthcare organisations. 

During the visit, The Duke, who was accompanied by the current Chairman of Herefordshire Council, Sebastian Bowen, visited The Old Rectory in Hope-Under-Dinmore, Herefordshire, for a guided tour of the Prometheus offices and training facilities. 

“We are delighted to welcome The Duke of Gloucester to our headquarters in rural Herefordshire,” said Dr Malcolm Russell MBE, Prometheus Founder and Group Chairman. “The Queen's Award for Enterprise for Innovation recognises our team and our ethos, and will encourage us even further to continue sourcing and creating solutions to challenges in the pre-hospital trauma care sector”.
