About us

Dorset Nursing Supplies - The company that cares about your needs.

Dorset Nursing Supplies is a family owned business and an established and well-respected medical supply company within the NHS and the care industry. We have been a provider of medical supplies, medical equipment and incontinence supplies since 1985. We also also offer servicing/inspections, repairs and hiring of medical equipment. For more information on this please see our services & repairs page or our equipment hire page.

As contractors to the NHS, we supply a vast range of medical products to Nursing/Care Establishments, Surgeries, Nursing Agencies and the General Public, as well as Hospitals, Universities and Schools, for example supplying care equipment and consumables to Nursing Homes, couch rolls and surgical instruments to Surgeries and incontinence aids and mobility equipment to the public.

We can help you with an extensive range of medical supplies from first aid kits, mobility aids, blood pressure monitors, hospital beds, to adult diapers, latex gloves, aprons, carpet cleaning and hand sanitiser. If you can't find what you're looking for in the online store, remember this is only a selection of what we sell. We also have access to thousands of products from the main manufacturers in the medical supply industry such as Omron, Bunzl, Abena, Patterson Medical, Sunflower Medical, Labcold, Merlin and more. 

Discretion: We understand that for sensitive products such as incontinence items, discretion is key - our policy is to be as discreet as practically possible. For example, on boxes of diapers all give-away markings will be covered over, and any reasonable special delivery requests will be adhered to.

Barrie Mayes – Director & Founder

Barrie independently started the business in 1985 and, although he is now substantially retired, he retains an active interest in the company. He is thrilled that both his children and grandchildren have chosen to become a part of the company, to continue and pass down the family business for hopefully many generations to come. In recent years he has enjoyed playing golf and travelling around Europe with his wife, Sue in their motor-home. He is well respected by everyone in our company and by all of our customers.
