We are now a member of the Infection Prevention Society

If the past year has taught us anything, then it’s how important the effective prevention of infection is. As a company we have done our best to play our part and are always looking at what else we could do. So today we’re excited to announce that we’re now officially a member of the Infection Prevention Society. And their mission couldn’t be closer to our goals.

“To inform, promote and sustain evidence-based infection prevention policy and practice to create a health and care system where no person’s health and wellbeing is harmed by preventable infection.”


Did you know that we started to actively prevent infection a while ago? With the development of our Ugo Urology range, we’ve been preventing catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) for years. CAUTIs are actually on of the most common healthcare associated infections. In fact, about 17.2% of all healthcare associated infections are urinary tract infections (UTIs) with 56% of those affecting people living with an indwelling urinary catheter.

We appreciate that offering the right product alone is not enough to prevent infections, however. How they are used is equally important! That’s exactly why we offer support and guidance on how to use the products in our Ugo Urology range correctly. So, if you have any questions or need help with any of our products, give us a ring on xxx or get in touch via email on hello@shop-optimum.com.

When COVID-19 took hold of the world, it became apparent very quickly that there was no way out of it without effective personal protective equipment (PPE) for everybody. And we knew that we had to play our part in this fight, so we got to work and developed our very own PPE range.

And today, we’re proud to say that we have the right products for everyone, from healthcare professional to individual. Whether you need FFP3 masks, disposable aprons, and gloves for your job at the hospital or a surgical mask, some hand sanitiser and disinfecting alcohol wipes for your weekly shop, we’ve got you covered. And all the products within our OptiPro range fully adhere to European standards!


We’re not ones to sit back and enjoy our successes for too long so we’re currently working on expanding our range with new products that will help to prevent infectious diseases from spreading. So, keep an eye out for some exciting announcements!


We’d love to hear from you!
