Leeds healthcare business expands with ecommerce acquisition

Healthcare 21, which has its UK headquarters in Leeds, has bolstered its ranks with the acquisition of ecommerce distributor and retailer Medscope.

The acquisition is part of strategic long-term expansion plans, Healthcare 21 said.

Based in the southwest of England, Medscope operates two websites marketing and selling medical and healthcare products to GP practices, schools, hospitals, care homes, emergency services and patients across the UK.

The two websites will play a key part in our plans to increase the accessibility of healthcare products to both healthcare professionals as well as an increasingly well-informed patient market looking for more autonomy over their healthcare.

The acquisition is timely for the UK launch of the new BOSCH Vivatmo FeNO devices to both Primary Care and Patients.
