Medical Gases in Cylinders (Ambulance) (Ref: 2021/S 000-005247)


The Medical Gases market is niche with very few suppliers who are regulated and need to hold a licence to trade in this market. The products are the supply of portable or vehicle mounted cylinders which are critical to the immediate treatment of patients who require either an Ambulance or Paramedic.
