Our Team

An exceptional team with many years’ experience in healthcare

The Premiere Healthcare team is made up of extraordinary individuals – even if we do say so ourselves! Jessica and Graham, who started the company, have amassed over ten years’ healthcare experience improving the comfort and quality of life for their customers.

The rest of our professional team have also worked within the healthcare sector. They’ve been hand-selected to join Premiere Healthcare because of their first-class customer service skills, their warmth and personality, and their exceptional qualifications and technical knowledge.

Together, thanks to the hard work and talent of our people, we’ve evolved to become one of the UK’s leading specialist seating companies – trusted by many hundreds of customers around the UK. We’d be proud to work with you too.

I contacted Premiere as I required some assistance with both access and thresholds within my house for my wife who has MS. Michael McHugh came to see us. Not only did we find him to be most knowledgeable providing us with excellent advice on equipment and how to best assist with our issue’s, he was also an exceedingly pleasant and polite young man. I would highly recommend Premiere for both the quality of the service and the polite professional attitude of the staff.

I would like to say thank you so much for organising dads chair so quickly. I got a bit emotional when he was wheeled out of his room for the first time. He found the chair very comfortable and the gentleman that delivered the chair was very helpful. He actually had his lunch at the table with the rest of the residents today! Many thanks again - you have made my dads last Christmas one to remember.

This is an email to say thank you to Nicola and the Team for the brilliant customer service carried out today. We had a new resident arriving and it was essential she had the appropriate bed and equipment for her needs. Through your speedy service she will now be comfortable at The Coombs. Thank you for your prompt service, it was appreciated.
