DPI Medical of the UK is a procurement company that specialises in supplying medical equipment. It provides a professional service to the healthcare sector, including educational and research institutions, in West Africa, particularly Nigeria, Ghana and Benin.

Apart from installation, commissioning and user training services, it offers ongoing technical support for all the medical products it supplies. Aside from in-house capabilities it also supplements its expertise by using worldwide consultants particularly from Europe and West Africa. Management and control functions are based in the UK.

RBS raised a 60-day letter of credit in favour of the supplier. The medical equipment was duly shipped and documents presented under the LCs.
