Single Use Instruments

Robinson Healthcare is a pioneer in the introduction of single use instruments, continuing the company’s long tradition of innovation. Launched in 2002 under the name of Instrapac®, the range has developed to become the brand of choice for many healthcare professionals throughout the UK, delivering high quality, reliability and value for money. Manufactured from medical grade surgical steel and advanced polymers, the instruments are packed in their own Class 7 clean room and sterilised by Ethylene Oxide gas or Steam to meet rigorous quality standards. Instrapac® is the brand of choice in the NHS.


Robinson Healthcare is the UK’s leading manufacturer of high quality medical absorbents and has the only volume cotton wool manufacturing plant in the UK. Excellence in medical absorbents can be traced back to the 1850’s when Robinson Healthcare was the first company in the world to mechanise the production of absorbent lint and 1885, when the company registered the world’s first patent for a sanitary towel.

Paper Products

The Robinson Healthcare range of paper products has been carefully selected to provide cost effective, absorbent, reliable solutions for everyday hygiene. The Readi® range of paper products can be used to clean, mop, wipe, dry and polish in a variety of clinical, professional care and beauty environments.

The Readi® range offers a wide choice to cater for your individual preference, application and budget. All of our products are tried and tested for quality, size and consistency, and are manufactured in the UK from sustainable sources.

Protective Wear

The Readi® Protect range of products brings an additional level of hygiene for clinics, clean rooms and higher risk tasks. Protecting the user, patient or environment from contamination, aprons and overshoes all play an important part in effective infection control procedures.

Wet Wipes

Following a large investment in our UK facility we can now offer a wide range of personal skin cleansing wipes. Available in a wide range of material blends, different thicknesses and sizes, these products are differentiated from conventional wipes by having an extremely effective fluid formula base.

As well as exceptional cleansing performance, these products calm, soothe, moisturise and condition the skin. In addition to skin cleansing wipes, we can also offer skin and surface decontamination wipes in sachet or flow wrap packaging. Our flexible UK development and production facility means that we can offer customer specific products and branding.

Dry Wipes

We have recently completed a large investment in a state-of-the-art production line in our UK production facility for cubically packed dry wipes. The packs are extremely compact for cost efficient shipping as well as offering hygienic and convenient dispensing for the user.

We offer a wide range of material blends, thicknesses and sizes and our flexible UK production facility means that we can offer customer specific branding or products.
