Her Heart’s in Health - Kate's Story

Her Heart’s in Health - Kate's Story

A former coronary care nurse with “a passion” for ensuring the NHS and emergency services are supplied with the best medical equipment has taken a top role here at SP Services.

Kate Slack has been appointed Director of Sales and Marketing here at SP Services (UK) to lead our team to promote further business growth for the company which this year we celebrate our 30th year in the healthcare industry.

Kate (44), who qualified as a staff nurse after gaining a nursing degree, says: “SP Services is a progressive company with an excellent track record with three decades of experience and I am excited to play a part in their continued growth.

“It is so important to have knowledge about the equipment we are distributing so we can ensure customers get the right medical and first aid equipment for their sector whether it is the NHS, emergency services, Government, military, sports clubs or the world of business and industry.”

After caring for critically ill patients in a Yorkshire hospital cardiology ward and Coronary Care Unit in a West Midlands hospital, Kate made a career move selling medical equipment and supplies as a regional sales manager with pharmaceutical wholesale company Phoenix Healthcare Distribution.

Kate has a 20 year career in the healthcare sector winning awards on the way, leading a medical supplies company to its best ever profits and building successful teams.

SP Services MD Simon Leggett said: “Kate has a passion for healthcare, a great knowledge of medical equipment and a desire to help professionals in all the sectors that we distribute to.

“Kate’s experience working in the health service mixed with her sales and marketing acumen will direct us on our next phase of strategic business growth.”
