Branded Medical Merchandise to Tie in With the Flu Season

The days have become colder meaning that Autumn is upon us, so it's time to stock up on your medical merchandise.

We can't be the only ones who have heard or seen someone with a cough and cold already this month. The month of September is prone to bacteria being spread as children go back to school. Children are hotbeds of bacteria, as they have a lower understanding of hygiene than any other group. This means that bacteria and germs can spread. If you think about it, a child will often suck their thumb, a toy or leave their drink bottle around. All it takes is for another child to touch that toy, bottle or an area the child has touched and they've already shared their germs. 

At this time of the year, Doctor's become inundated with children and patients suffering from flu, colds and other illnesses. Most medical professionals will tell you that healthcare can be both the toughest and most rewarding industry to work in, and this time of the year has to be one of the toughest. This is why you should give customers medical merchandise items which can make the Doctors lives a little bit easier. 

At Total Merchandise, we have a large section dedicated to medical merchandise. These items include cards which detail symptoms of flu to stress balls, there are hundreds of items available. Due to the nature of the industry, the medical professional requires extra thought in marketing campaigns as it requires extra sensitivity. It is, in fact, this time of year that medical professionals start to warn of flu. 

It doesn't matter how old you are, anyone can catch the flu. There are many different strains and some groups of people are more vulnerable to the illness than others which means it affects everyone differently. One of the most important messages for the NHS at this time of year is to encourage vulnerable groups to have their flu jabs. It is also important for people to understand the symptoms of the flu as it can lead to more serious illnesses.

One of the most popular medical merchandise items during the autumn and winter months is the cold and flu symptom checker which includes a forehead thermometer and a symptom checker which can help to determine whether the user has a cold or the flu. 

Of course, our medical merchandise can only advise you on the symptoms and aren't guaranteed to tell you whether you have the flu but it can certainly help with marketing campaigns!
