A unique approach

At Covalon we are committed to offering our customers cost effective, proven quality, wound management solutions.

CovaWound™ was first launched into the NHS in 2017. Since that time, the business has continued to grow in strength with our highly experienced business development team supporting healthcare professionals throughout the UK in switching to CovaWound™.

We understand the pressures faced by healthcare professionals to reduce their wound care dressing spend and our clever, lean business modelling means we’re able to offer CovaWound™ at a price that offers cost savings to our customers, and still promotes high standards of care.

In 2018, (the first full year where CovaWound™ was available to order through both NHS Supply Chain and Drug Tariff) we estimated that overall the CCGs and NHS Hospital teams who switched to CovaWound™ saved the NHS budget a total of circa £300,000.5

We are inspired every day by the motivation and commitment of the health professionals we work with, and we’re passionate about the benefits CovaWound™ can bring to patient care throughout the NHS and across Europe.

‘’Covalon Technologies have provided excellent support and education during the evaluation of their Foam Dressings. The products are high quality and cost effective. We are happy to be introducing them to our Trust.’’

Simon Smith

CEO Covalon Technologies (Europe) Ltd

I have worked with medical devices for nearly all of my career; I find personal reward in improving the standards of care for patients and improving the capability of caregivers to deliver that care.

I have worked extensively in the wound management market, most recently as the Global Business Development Director at a large multinational. Here I was responsible for all non-organic growth for the Wound Care Division, leading internal and external teams, developing and implementing the Mergers and & Acquisition Strategy.

I also run a successful international consulting business.
Having worked with Covalon Technologies Ltd through my consultancy, I joined the company in January 2017. I am excited with the prospect of providing high quality products at affordable prices, soon to be followed by some truly innovative products which will significantly improve the standards of care in a number of specialist areas


Dan Reilly

UK Sales Development Manager

Having worked in wound management for over 20 years, I have a wealth of knowledge within this field of healthcare.

I have both a clinical and an academic background. Having studied and achieved a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Economics and Management from Manchester University, I then qualified and worked as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) for a number of years. My subsequent career in medical sales has allowed me to develop management skills, having latterly held a position as National Sales Manager with an international supplier for nine years.

My skills therefore encompass both business and clinical expertise together with a strong awareness of the impact that living with wounds has on the quality of life for the individual.  I bring this all together now and support the development of Covalon Technologies (Europe) Limited into a leading supplier for the UK healthcare market, providing patients, caregivers and the wider NHS with high quality, clinically effective wound management products.
