Our story is both inspiring and remarkable, it is one of growth and success amid some extraordinary circumstances.

This is the story of Gama Healthcare.

Born from two curious medical doctors who challenged the status quo and led them to develop today's innovative range of infection prevention products for both hospitals and consumers.

Wipes and hand sanitising gels could hardly be more topical at the moment, just two of the products from our innovative range. From humble beginnings to becoming the largest supplier of wipes to the NHS is quite some feat.

We've all seen the stories of "super-bugs", MRSA and microbial resistance. Add into the mix the devastating effects on people's lives of Coronavirus and you can understand why we are passionate about what we do.

It is also why we continue to innovate new products, moving us into new spaces. It is these new products, Rediroom a temporary isolation room and Violet, a UV room sanitiser that is driving our latest recruitment.

We are recruiting a Software Engineer into our Capital Equipment team within the Science & Innovation group based in Halifax.
