Promotional Medical Merchandise Ready for The Christmas Period

According to statistics, more than 80,000 people will find themselves in their local A&E over Christmas and New Year with an injury that could have been prevented. This is as people start to let their guard down and drink more during the festivities which means lots more alcohol-related injuries. This means if you work within an A&E department, it's likely you will want to educate people into the 'dangers' of drinking. The perfect way to do this is through the use of medical merchandise. 

Christmas is now just over a week away and Christmas parties have been under-way since the beginning of December. With so many Christmas parties taking place, it's likely these will continue right up until the New Year. As previously mentioned, Christmas is already one of the busiest times of the year for A&E departments. Not only is this due to injuries often caused by alcohol but also because Doctors surgeries are often closed which means people are encouraged to visit their local A&E department rather than their Doctors surgery. 

This highlights another use of medical merchandise – advising your patients of your Christmas opening times so they aren't trying to contact you when the surgery is closed and who they can contact instead. This will save a lot of admin when you return after the Christmas break and also means that your patients don't have to wait until you open again to see you.

Of course, not all injuries and illnesses over Christmas are alcohol-related. In fact, one of the most common illnesses to occur over Christmas is food poisoning. This is because people often don't cook their turkeys properly which can lead to salmonella poisoning. In fact, it is such a problem in the UK that the Government spend money on advertising every year reminding people to make sure their turkeys are fully cooked before eating them. You could use medical merchandise to advise people on how to make sure their turkeys are fully cooked.

The medical merchandise you choose can come in many different shapes and forms. For example, you could invest in printed pens which detail a website address such as the NHS website. As there is so much information on this website, it is a really helpful website to promote. You could also invest in nurse shaped stress toys, which again can be printed with a marketing message or your website address. Christmas is proven to be one of the most stressful times of the year, so this will help your customers. 

Christmas is supposed to be one of the most joyful times of the year and you can help to achieve this with effective medical merchandise.
