Date:3/2/2012

LONDON, March 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvaTec, a world-leading developer and marketer of innovative medical technologies for community and hospital care today announced that Amcare Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ConvaTec Holdings UK Ltd, has acquired SureCalm Healthcare Holdings Ltd and subsidiaries ("SureCalm Healthcare"), a UK-based homecare services group that specialises in the home delivery of prescribable stoma care and continence devices.

As a well-respected company in the home delivery business, SureCalm Healthcare is an ideal complement to Amcare, the existing home delivery service from ConvaTec, which has been serving UK customers for nearly 20 years. The SureCalm Healthcare group includes three dispensing appliance contractors, trading as AlphaMed, BCA Direct and Homestyle Positive, operating as subsidiary companies, and an internet and mail order pharmacy business.  Like Amcare, SureCalm Healthcare is recognised for its unbiased, reliable and caring service as well as its total dedication to customers. SureCalm Healthcare, Amcare and ConvaTec share a commitment to the highest standards of customer care and service. 

In keeping with the importance of continuity in customer service, there will be no impact on current orders, and delivery schedules and business will continue as normal. Amcare, ConvaTec and SureCalm Healthcare understand the importance of receiving stoma care and continence products on time and in a discreet manner and are committed to continuing to provide customers with uninterrupted service and the products they depend upon.
