Ultramed receive first ever King’s Award for Enterprise

Ultramed are among the recipients of the first ever King’s Award for Enterprise, formerly known as the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Ultramed was established in 2014 and combines clinical NHS executive experience with international design expertise, to provide elegant, patient-focused solutions to common problems.

CEO Dr Paul Upton said: “Since Ultramed first started in the Health & Wellbeing Innovation Centre nearly ten years ago before moving to Tremough Innovation Centre, we’ve focused on growing the functionalities of our products through our gained knowledge, in line with technological advances. The impact of the global pandemic rocketed the demand for pioneering healthcare technology.

“The King’s Award bolsters our credibility in the industry, and it goes without saying that we are incredibly proud. We’ll be celebrating with the whole team, who’ve helped to build Ultramed into the business we are today.”

Minister for Enterprise, Kevin Hollinrake, said: “I congratulate the first ever recipients of The King’s Awards for Enterprise, who exemplify the talent, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit of British business. I wish them every success and commend the invaluable contributions they make to communities both at home and overseas, helping to grow the UK economy.”

The award programme, now in its 57th year, is one of the most prestigious business awards in the country, with successful businesses able to use the King’s Awards emblem for the next five years.
