Repose Furniture Limited is pleased to announce that it has been acquired by the Prism Healthcare group.

Prism Healthcare is a group holding company which works across the UK, providing specialist products and services to sectors which include homecare, long-term care, education and acute care. The decision to acquire Repose was driven by a wider desire to deliver measurable, real world health and social outcomes in a way which empowers carers to provide premium services. Repose is joining the Prism family shortly after Harvest Healthcare, and Lisa Wardley will continue as MD driving Repose forward.

Prism were drawn to Repose as market leaders in the provision of specialist seating solutions, and in particular by our expert understanding of our customers and exactly what they need. Working in partnership with Harvest and the other members of the Prism family will simultaneously enable us to provide even better services to our existing clients and build relationships with new customers.

The fact that Prism Healthcare operates from nine facilities across the UK enables them to forge deep and meaningful connections with the communities they serve, and this is something which chimes with the long-established ethos of Repose – working in a way which encourages and embeds social engagement and interaction. Our acquisition by Prism will enable us to deliver this kind of in-depth quality and support in the short term, despite the challenges thrown up by the Covid-19 pandemic, and in the longer term as some kind of normality returns. We’re looking forward to working with our new colleagues to enhance and deepen the products, services and support we can offer to our customers.

As a UK manufacturer, service provider and inclusive employer, Prism operates from nine facilities across the UK. They enjoy deep rooted connections to each of the communities they are part of, which in turn provides opportunities for greater social engagement and interaction. “Understanding our social responsibility and positively impacting the lives of service users and their support circles is a significant dimension to the community services we provide,” says Emma Toas, Operations Director.

Repose Furniture Limited (Repose) is the latest specialized healthcare product provider to join the Prism Healthcare family, hot on the heels of Harvest Healthcare, an organisation celebrated for its customer-first values and approach. Repose are one of the market leaders in specialist seating solutions, designing and manufacturing a full range of specialist chairs ranging from entry-level riser-recliners to advanced bespoke healthcare chairs. Repose owner and Managing Director Lisa Wardley will continue to lead the Repose teams, reporting to Neil Davis, Managing Director of Harvest Healthcare.

“We acquired Repose, attracted by their intimate understanding of their customers and their customer needs. Now part of the Prism Healthcare family, we can further broaden our offerings to our homecare and long-term care customers. Lisa and her team share the Harvest ethos of working in long-term partnerships with customers and suppliers, to support the delivery of exceptional resident and patient care, at an affordable price, and to try to make everyone’s lives a little easier.”

explains Neil Davis, of Harvest Healthcare.

Lisa adds

“Collaborating with our new colleagues at Harvest will enable us to build many new customer relationships whilst continuing to successfully serve our existing customer base. Exciting times"!

Of course, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, with lockdown forcing limited-to-no contact with family members, never before has consistent, high quality care been more important to the lives of those who need it most.

As Prism Healthcare CEO Stuart Meldrum reflects

“Covid-19 has presented us with more than a few challenges, but we’ve managed to support those that matter when it matters most. We are exceptionally proud with how our teams have supported OTs, care homes and services users in the best ways possible. Operating from multiple sites has meant that we can continue our mission – to provide choice and certainty, with a continuous and resilient service throughout the ongoing pandemic.”
