    Huntleigh Healthcare wins at the Cardiff Business Awards 2020


    Huntleigh is delighted to have been named a winner at the sixth annual Cardiff Business Awards, held recently in a virtual ceremony hosted by Jamie Owen. 

    The Cardiff-based company was among 46 companies to be named finalists in this year’s highly anticipated awards, which celebrate the best businesses in Cardiff and the vast potential that exists within the capital city of Wales.  

    Huntleigh was named winner in the Innovation Business of the Year category.


    With a long history of innovation, Huntleigh has become a recognised global player in the design, manufacture and distribution of medical technology. The company houses two distinct product categories within its portfolio: Fetal & Patient Monitoring and Vascular Assessment & Wound Care. The latter provided the accolades for the award with our most recent innovation WoundExpress, a device that a patients can use at home to assist in the healing of lower leg ulcers.

    The NHS manages an estimated 278,000 venous leg ulcers (VLUs) every year, of which 47% (130,660), do not heal within 12 months. These wounds are both painful and uncomfortable for the patient and expensive for health authorities (community nurse visits take a lot of time and make up a large part of the cost). 

    WoundExpress provides an effective solution - improving patient care and reducing the requirement for nurse visits, therefore enabling them to support a wider variety of patient groups. Developed in collaboration with University Hospital of Wales (UHW) and the Welsh Wound Innovation Centre (WWIC), our new, unique device uses Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) away from the wound site to increase blood flow around the leg ulcer. This aids early healing, even on some of the most long lasting and challenging wounds clinicians can face.  

    Speaking about the award, Greg Baily, Technical Director at Huntleigh said “
    It’s fantastic to be recognised in this year’s Cardiff Business Awards. Many years of development and growth have been behind Huntleigh’s success, allowing investment in significant innovations which we believe will not only be good for the health of the business, but also the population. This award comes on the back of the release of our latest product for healing chronic lower limb wounds – a debilitating and life changing condition. This product has already begun to transform sufferers’ lives while presenting a cost benefit to care givers and it’s been a privilege for me to be part of this journey”.

    Now in their sixth year, the awards recognised those companies and individuals who have enjoyed impressive success over the last year and have made an outstanding contribution both to their respective sectors and to the wider Cardiff economy itself. 

    The main sponsor for the awards is Cardiff Council, and Cllr Huw Thomas, Leader of Cardiff Council said:
    While this year’s awards have taken place in a very difficult environment for business, we have been delighted with the range and quality of the applications.  Amongst the winners, there are well established businesses in the city and a new generation of technology companies who will be making their mark in the economy over the years ahead.

    As a Council we look forward to working with all the businesses and helping them to grow and prosper in our capital city .”

    The Cardiff Business Awards were supported by headline sponsors Cardiff Council, with other sponsors including; AMPLYFI, Bluegg, Box UK, Cardiff and Vale College, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Cleartech Live, CPS Group (UK), Development Bank of Wales, Dragon Taxis, LexisNexis Risk Solutions, Towergate Insurance Brokers and United Purpose.

    Liz Brookes co-founder of the awards and director of Grapevine Event Management said:
    " Although we couldn’t get to celebrate in person with everyone I am so pleased we were still able to recognise the amazing depth of talent that Cardiff has. Even in a pandemic we had a record number of entries and it was humbling to hear from so many amazing companies who are achieving great things despite tough times and I congratulate all of them on their achievements”.
    The nominated charity partner for the awards was Cancer Research Wales, which is dedicated to developing life-changing treatments, diagnostic techniques, and research for people with cancer.
