Last Updated on: 24th February 2024, 10:26 am

Celebrating 42 years of service, GP Care Systems stands as the UK’s leading innovator in designing and supplying compact visitor beds for hospitals and hospices, continuously pushing the boundaries of hospital visitor accommodation with its revolutionary  ‘WISKAWAY’® Wallbeds and ‘GLIDEAWAY’® Guestbeds.

Since its foundation in 1982, GP Care Systems has consistently dedicated itself to enhancing hospitals and hospices with cutting-edge solutions for hosting visitors and on-call staff overnight. The company’s bed solutions have transformed the norms of comfort, safety, and efficiency, enabling overnight visitors to stay in comfort without compromising daytime ward space.

GP Care Systems identified and addressed a crucial need in the healthcare market by introducing wall beds in hospitals during the 1980s, significantly improving overnight stay experiences for visitors on various wards. The introduction of ‘WISKAWAY’® Wallbeds and ‘GLIDEAWAY’® Guestbeds marked a turning point in setting industry standards for quality and functionality.

John Miller, the visionary Founder and CEO of GP Care Systems, remarked, “Our two main high-performance product ranges, our ‘WISKAWAY’® Wallbeds and ‘GLIDEAWAY’® Guestbeds, are designed to address the specific needs of hospitals and hospices.”

These visitor beds embody the peak of innovation and quality in healthcare, crafted with visitor comfort and ward space optimisation in mind.

The company’s commitment to excellence is evident in a 33% annual increase in turnover, reflecting the healthcare sector’s trust in GP Care Systems. Current notable projects include collaborative efforts with University Hospitals Southampton for ward refurbishments at Southampton General Hospital and the Princess Anne Hospital.

GP Care Systems sets itself apart by providing exceptional after-sales service and support, ensuring customer satisfaction and product longevity. The durability of GP Care Systems’ products is proven by the long-term use of ‘WISKAWAY’® Wallbeds by institutions like Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, which has been using the original beds supplied since 1993.

Reflecting on the company’s journey, John Miller stated, “Our long journey has been characterised by challenges, perseverance, and a steadfast belief in the transformative power of our products.”

“We remain committed to providing hospitals and hospices with the ultimate solutions for accommodating visitors overnight, ensuring comfort, convenience, and peace of mind for patients and their visitors alike and helping to speed up patient recovery.”

As GP Care Systems commemorates 42 years of service, it continues to focus on innovation and excellence, aspiring to shape the future of healthcare accommodation with its commitment to superior product design.
