How using the right print and design partner can help alleviate key challenges facing the health & homecare sector

As one of the largest suppliers to the home and healthcare sector in the UK, we understand the challenges people within these sectors might be facing in their day to day roles. We have crafted our service solution specifically to alleviate these challenges. Here, we take a look at some of our clients’ top priorities and the solutions which we offer to them.


A 2021 study carried out by the UK Government has revealed that recruitment, staff retainment and staff morale were some of the biggest challenges facing the Home Care sector. As an antidote to this, holding recruitment fairs has also proven to be an effective way to recruit new team members, as it gives you the opportunity to meet potential candidates face to face, explain more about your organisation in a personal way and receive on the spot job applications. Our team of experts can help you when planning these events. We can advise on various types of promotional items which will effective for marketing your event, while also offering advice on how to get the most out of your budget – whatever that might be – for any types of materials you need. We supply everything from flyers and pop-up banners to promotional bottles, pens, calendars or even power banks. All from one single source.

Staffing Retainment & Morale

Internal staff events and dedicated employee appreciation weeks are also an effective way of gaining feedback from your team and showing team that you appreciate their contribution to your organisation. We have been involved in various initiatives with our clients who have offered everything from wellness weeks to employee award shows. As well as providing everything you require for these events, we can provide best practice on what we have helped clients with in the past and what works well to increase your employee morale and retention.

Brand Compliance and Marketing Campaigns

Do you operate across several sites within one umbrella organisation? We understand that having several marketing personnel, working under one brand group, on various localised campaigns can present challenges in ensuring unified branding across the board. With various graphic designers and online tools replicating one brand, sometimes fonts, spacing, colours and even images can be at risk of becoming ‘off-brand’. Our Web2Print platform allows your marketing team to design their own collateral from pre-approved templates of static and variable items, giving you the peace of mind that no branding will be compromised along the way. Our system also offers the option of individual logins for end-users to ensure your team can find exactly what they need, when they need it, using a system which is bespoke to their requirements. This also provides assurance when it comes to authorising orders and keeping your projects within your budget.

Regulatory Compliance

As a company working predominantly within the NHS and wider healthcare sector since the beginning of our company, we know that regulatory compliance is an important issue. That’s why our workflows are designed specifically with this in mind. Our pre-designed templates ensure that all wording on documents is correct and approved across the board and we have a quality control system in place by our team who are experts in understanding our clients regulatory obligations. Our stock management system also alerts you to your stock levels and our management information reports can give you an indication of obsolete stock, ensuring this is never replenished when it is no longer required. Our systems make you job easier, so that you can concentrate on what’s really important in your role.

Delivery and Fulfilment

Working with various suppliers across a large organisations can happen for a number of reasons. For example;

  • Different requirements for localised campaigns
  • A lack of communication across departments
  • A lack of knowledge of when it comes to what suppliers can provide.

There is also a presumption that delivery time will be quicker when using a local supplier. Unfortunately, this can also lead to dilution in buying power, driving up individual costs. Using a single supplier like SF Taylor can consolidate your supply chain, increase your buying power and reduce your costs. We have the resources to dispatch across the length and breadth of the UK and we also put service level agreements to offer you piece of mind that we can deliver quickly to any site, so turnaround time need never be an issue. We work with various clients who have a number of sites across the UK and Ireland. One such client (with over 500 sites and counting) say working with SF Taylor has increased their productivity and turnaround time as well as increasing efficiency across the board. “You’ve changed my life! It’s so easy to use and everything is seamless. We can design, check stock levels, order and invoice – all from one system. No spreadsheets to deal with. HubTec has revolutionised how we manage our marketing activities and budgets.”
