Any recommendations for a website which sells first aid supplies?

In particular, I'm after reasonably priced trauma dressings.

In reply to mmmhumous: If you don't already know exactly what you want, I would highly recommend the TraumaFix bandages http://www.firstaid4less.co.uk/13531_-Bandages/TraumaFix-High-Pressure-Bandage.html

Thankfully, I have not had to use one for real, but we used a couple on my last first aid course and they were very well-designed and easy to use. What I can testify to is that the vacuum sealed packaging has proved excellent and has kept my two dressings pristine despite spending the last year in my rucsac first aid kit.

Prices seem pretty much the same across different suppliers. What does vary considerably is postage costs and how much you need to buy for free delivery.

I am afraid I can't give a definitive recommendation for which supplier, but if you do find somewhere better than the website I linked to, please post the details here as I also need to buy more supplies for the Spring.

I've always used SPS Services. Found them to be good value for the actual equipment, although they make up for it a bit on the postage, so tend to bulk buy/share orders. http://www.spservices.co.uk/

Free postage on all Internet orders. Used the company numerous times, reliable.

Can vouch for Traumafix also, good simple bit of kit that works.

These are the 2 that I get my bits from, also do Zinc Oxide tape cheaper than climbing shops ( just don't tell everyone, or I won't be able to get mine from them as they will be out of stock.)

No, I said cheaper than climbing shops. Unless medisave is a climbing shop of which im pretty sure its not.
And just so that people don't get their info wrong, I have just checked www.medisave.co.uk website.

Can you please order me 1 roll of 1.25cm x 10mtr roll of Zinc oxide at the price you have quoted, and with my free postage.

Thanks
