Welland Medical visits SPCare

Welland Medical’s Global Commitment in Portugal

Last month, our Welland Medical team, including Hendrik Van Der Velde (Business Development Manager), Moira Evans (Clinical Marketing Manager and Stoma Care Nurse), and Chris Bray (Lead Designer Engineer), had the pleasure of participating in the Welland Day event hosted by our Portuguese distributor, SPCare, at the exquisite Hotel dos Templários in Portugal on October 21st and 22nd.

Beyond being a professional gathering, this event provided a unique opportunity to immerse ourselves in Portugal’s rich history and culture. Nestled in the heart of Tomar, the Hotel dos Templários set the stage, offering a picturesque backdrop for collaboration and innovation.

Exploring Portugal’s Rich Heritage

An unforgettable highlight of our visit was the exploration of the Convento de Cristo, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Originally designed as a symbol of the Reconquest, the Convent of the Knights Templar of Tomar underwent a transformation during the Manueline period, becoming a beacon of Portugal’s openness to other civilizations. This historical site offered a unique perspective, aligning with Welland Medical’s commitment to embracing diverse perspectives in ostomy care.

Global Distribution Network and Partnership with SPCare

Our dedication to enhancing the lives of those with a stoma worldwide is evident not only in our commitment to embracing diverse perspectives but also in the meticulous planning of our distribution network in Portugal. Partnering with SPCare has allowed us to establish a robust and efficient system, ensuring that our ostomy products are readily available to individuals across the country. This collaboration reflects our unwavering commitment to providing high-quality care and support to those living with a stoma worldwide.

Reflecting on the Welland Day Experience

Hendrik Van Der Velde, reflecting on the experience, expressed his gratitude, stating, “Thank you to the incredible team at SPCare for the invitation to join their Welland Day event. It was a privilege to be a part of such a dynamic and collaborative effort, with the commitment to excellence and teamwork truly shining through. After such a successful event, I can’t wait to see what 2024 holds for our partnership.”

The Welland Day event itself was a testament to the dedication of both Welland Medical and SPCare to advancing ostomy care. The exchange of ideas, knowledge, and the latest advancements in the field further solidified the partnership, setting the stage for future collaborations.

Heartfelt Appreciation to SP Care

Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to the team at SPCare for their excellent organisation and warm hospitality. Their commitment to ensuring a seamless and productive event allowed our team to focus on what matters most – fostering relationships and exploring innovative solutions for ostomy care.

Looking Towards the Future

As we reflect on this insightful trip to Portugal, we look forward to the continued growth of our partnership with SPCare. The collaborative spirit witnessed during Welland Day serves as a foundation for future endeavours, and we are excited about the possibilities that 2024 holds for both organisations.
