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.

Each Assessor has a dedicated Customer Champion based at our Tewkesbury office (HQ). You can contact your Customer Champion anytime between 8:30 am and 5 pm to book assessments, or with any general queries or quote requests.

Thank you Annabell for all your support in helping identify suitable equipment for my client's complex needs.

The slings and shower chair arrived and I completed my assessment visit today. We assessed him in the Cressy shower sling first and positioned him into the shower chair adapting it accordingly to meet his postural needs. For the first time in months he had a shower, it was a very special moment for him, the carers and for us to see such a great outcome. The opportunity to shower has had a huge impact on his quality of life. We will assess with the other sling when his wheelchair arrives, hopefully the outcome will be just as good.

Pembrokeshire OT

I just wanted to pass on some lovely feedback I received from the Careflex Hydrotilt that we issued that young man. Mum has informed me that he is using the chair often and has also asked for it to be taken downstairs so he can watch TV with his mum (which as I think you are aware, he never left the bedroom!)

Children’s Occupational Therapist, Birmingham

Andrew, I can’t thank you enough for the excellent, person centred and flexible approach you have provided for my client, you have been nothing short of excellent. I was very impressed and pleased to work alongside such a caring and knowledgeable rep, and provide a great outcome for the client. Thank you also for agreeing to leave the assessment chair with him to fill the gap between the chair being delivered.

Wiltshire OT

I wish to say a very big thank you to you for your help and assistance in this matter. If you had not done as you did, we would probably have had to evacuate our residents. The list for bed repairs I will get to you as soon as I can.
Many thanks for your help in this matter - I don't know what we would have done without you.
