Healthcare professional contact form

PLEASE, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE FILLING IN THE FORM BELOW, SO AS NOT TO WASTE OUR TIME AND YOURS.

We are happy to provide a complimentary Nitty Gritty Comb and literature for evaluation purposes, but only to genuine healthcare professionals working with children and families affected by head lice.

This is because the NHS employ 1.5 m people and we are sorry but we are unable to provide samples to NHS employees who DO NOT work directly with people affected by head lice.

Please note that we can provide you with one sample comb (unless you contact us directly) with a MAXIMUM OF 3 REQUESTS PER HEALTH/MEDICAL CENTRE. Please do not send multiple requests for more than 3 staff members as we will be unable to fulfil the requests. In order to make sure that they are getting to the right people (GP's, practice and school nurses, health visitors, pharmacists etc) who will be using them in their professional capacity, we need the following:

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY WITHOUT THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:

(i) the request must come from an NHS (or equivalent) email address

(ii) the delivery address MUST be your NHS/Private Practice, Health Centre, hospital address or professional establishment where you work and MUST include the surgery or department name and your FULL professional job title.

(iii) the surgery or department phone number a mobile is not accepted.

IF YOU DO NO SUPPLY THESE DETAILS, YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE A COMPLIMENTARY COMB AND WE MAY NOT NOTIFY YOU OF THIS AS WE GET SO MANY INCORRECTLY FILLED IN FORMS.

REGISTERED CHILDMINDERS. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Unfortunately we are no longer available to supply childminders with complimentary Nitty Gritty Combs.

Every month we used to allocate a quota of complimentary Nitty Gritty Combs for registered childminders. Unfortunately we have become victims of our own success - it was posted on so many childminder forums that the sheer volume of childminders asking for complimentary combs has just become too many.

We are very sorry to disappoint you, but we are a small company (3 mums) and much as we’d like to give one to every childminder in the country, it would put us out of business!

However the GOOD NEWS is that if you decide to order 6 or more Nitty Gritty Combs on behalf of the childrens’ parents we will be able to offer you a discount. Just give us a call or drop us a line for more details.

And we’ve got even more GOOD NEWS - the Nitty Gritty Comb is available on NHS prescription (free for children Under 16’s) from many GPs and prescribing practice nurses.

You can read how to get the comb on prescription at the following link and you can even print out a letter to take to your GP.
