What else should applicants know about us?

Company Values

PERFORMANCE means being responsive to the needs of our customers, setting ourselves clear goals and standards and achieving them. We deliver quality and value in our products and services that provide quantifiable social and economic benefits. Our product, technique and service developments reduce pain, speed recovery. For example, by getting patients back on their feet more quickly following surgery, or by reducing the time it takes to perform procedures, like a hip replacement, more operations can be performed more cost effectively.

INNOVATION means taking a pioneering approach to the design of our products and services, being energetic, creative and passionate about everything we do. We are forward looking; anticipating customers' needs, overcoming barriers and developing opportunities. We encourage and support new ideas, and are always seeking to improve the lives of healthcare professionals and the patients they treat with effective and safe product and service innovations.

TRUST is something we understand that we have to earn. We earn it by being friendly, approachable and listening to others. We work hard to build lasting and close relationships with our customers, colleagues and the communities in which we operate. We are honest and straightforward and do what we say. We have integrity and an ethical approach to business. Our Code of Business Principles defines our relationships with all of our stakeholders, and the behaviours and conduct they should expect from us in our dealings with them.
