Sustainability & Carbon Neutrality
Vygon is proud to be a Carbon Neutral Company committed to sustainability for a brighter tomorrow. We fully support the NHS supplier roadmap to net zero and strive to enhance our corporate social responsibility (CSR) by managing our operations responsibly. We have implemented various sustainable measures, such as using solar panels in our offices, a hybrid fleet, and planting an orchard on-site. Additionally, we are exploring the possibility of installing a wind farm at the office. Vygon UK achieved Carbon Neutrality Certification in November 2021, marking the beginning of our journey towards Net Zero, in line with the NHS Supply Chain's target to reach Net Zero by 2045.
Exceptional Customer Service
We value our customers and believe in promptly responding to queries with accurate and relevant information. That's why we go the extra mile and offer a dedicated Customer Service Team to support each of our customers who can assist with any queries and provide additional information.

Technical Support & On-site Laboratory
Our Swindon office has two on-site labs: the Mechanical Lab and Biological Lab. These labs enable our Lab Technicians to quickly conduct any testing or investigations required by our customers, streamlining our complaint-handling process. Our Mechanical Lab tests newly developed or modified products, including our capital equipment. Our Biological Lab will investigate any contaminated products that are returned to us, and provide the customer with a detailed report of any issues. Our Technical Team offers ongoing care and support for our medical devices, always available to answer questions and examine any problems.
"Always very helpful when I call…Very prompt, detailed and useful reports when we have sent items back for assessment."

We provide comprehensive training options for healthcare providers and patients. Our gastrostomy study days offer peer-led presentations, practical sessions, and workshops on enteral feeding. Additionally to in-person training sessions, we also provide online training courses.

This course, along with all our vascular access courses, is free to current Vygon customers.
