SF Taylor are proud to say that we are specialists within the healthcare sector, and that our services are literally award winning!




From sustainability right through to innovation, we've got the NHS covered for their total print solutions - something we're proud to have been consistently recognised for.


2019 is no exception, as we were highly commended at the NHS in the North Excellence In Supply Awards! This time, for our support services to the healthcare sector, and specifically the NHS!

We currently control, manage and deliver over 40,000 documents across our NHS customers. That's a LOT. We've perfected our processes, to ensure that we're delivering compliant, governed documentation, and supporting the NHS core values.



We Wanted To Share 5 Ways That Our Award Winning Print Management Services Benefit the NHS...

Brand Control

The NHS is perhaps the most recognisable organisation in the country. Therefore, it is integral that their brand and identity are kept in perfect check. We take this responsibility seriously, and our studio team live and breathe NHS identity guidelines. Although brand consistency is essential, we also know how important it is for individual trusts to have their own identity within their local community. Our teams work with communications and procurement departments alike to deliver cost effective, trust branded solutions that are easily identifiable as NHS services.


The publication of the 2016 Carter report meant that NHS procurement teams were met with a huge pressure to catalogue 80% of all their products. With this in mind, our experts got to work creating multiple catalogues, that are easily accessible across different platforms. We now have 99% of our customer's work catalogued! We didn't stop there - in an era where the printed product is becoming a commodity, we recognised the need to work efficiently and reduce touch points. We introduced our electronic workflows and HubTec, and we haven't looked back since!

Specialist Teams

Our dedicated account management team are committed to building long lasting, sustainable relationships with our customers. We're always here to help and support, and our main focus is to deliver true value services to the NHS. Whether it's working with procurement, clinicians, or admin teams, we are on hand to provide expert advice. We're passionate about driving innovation, sharing the best practices and challenging the norm!

Time Saving

Our services are a huge time saver for the NHS. By handling the entire process of their print requirements, we reduce the time that clinical professionals would have to spend creating and handling documents. Therefore, they can focus on what's important - providing amazing healthcare. We meet delivery deadlines, and ensure that print is where it needs to be, on time, every time. Our online portal also allows staff to order and personalise new, on brand print in a matter of minutes.


The world of healthcare is continually evolving, as new technologies, research and innovations emerge. As processes and procedures change, so does documentation - suddenly the 40,000 documents we hold becomes 140,000! It's vital that important documentation, such as drug charts, have the correct version in place. Our workflows strategically manage version control, by setting review date triggers and ensuring old versions are correctly archived for compliance.

"We have seen many benefits from working with SF Taylor, including a total reduction in our on-site stock holding of physical print. Goods can now be ordered 24/7 via an online catalogue and are usually delivered within a 2 week lead time (sooner in most cases).This has dramatically improved the ordering process for our clinical team receiving their orders. Delays in requests for printing were previously a common complaint, and have now virtually disappeared.

The implementation of the new process was very simple and did not cause any disruption to our day to day activities. SF Taylor have proactively remained supportive to the Trust, and provided advice to further improve our printing service.”

Chris Ayres, Head of Facilities at Leeds Teaching Hospitals
