“Winning the Nursing Times Product Award is a demonstration of all the hard work everyone at FPD Medical has contributed over the past few years. Being a smaller company in a category with so many market leaders is an accomplishment in itself; to go on and win is remarkable and will be documented as one of the brand’s highlights.

We have always believed Aderma® to be a great product and winning this award confirms that the users believe this as well.”
