Alliance Healthcare, in partnership with North West Ostomy Supplies (NWOS), have an extensive range of over 9,000 surgical products.

The main categories of surgical are: diagnostics, woundcare, ostomy, incontinence and support & compression hosiery.

Our range also includes mobility aids and products which are designed to meet daily needs of our ageing population and those with physical disabilities.

This broad range consists of key products to support all your patients' needs. We carry out regular market research in order to ensure that we monitor all additions, deletions and price changes to the Drug Tariff. We also work closely with our suppliers to monitor their new product pipeline to ensure stock availability for our customers is second to none.

We have a number of Reduced Wholesale Agreements allowing us full access to those products. 


We have an own brand patient care category of products including surgical, diagnostics, orthopaedics and everyday health & hygiene.  Find out more about our Alvita products.
