Our Continued Medical Engineering Services

We realise a healthcare organisation's priority at this time is maintaining continued and uninterrupted patient services, we are offering you our uninterrupted support where we can in this challenging time. Our qualified and accredited medical engineering staff have extensive experience and provide a wide range medical engineering services and support for both on and off-site requirements. Our clinical engineering services include:

Long Term Maintenance of Medical Equipment

Our Planned Preventative Maintenance Contracts (PPMC's) provide clinics with the reassurance that their medical equipment is free of fault and working to the manufacturer's specification, reducing equipment downtime. PPMC’s are essential to ensure the smooth running of any medical establishment including GP, dental, veterinary practices, medical equipment lease companies and lease holders.

Equipment Testing & Condition Reporting

Using the most up-to-date test equipment our team of medical engineers will test all types of medical equipment and will provide a condition report accordingly to provide you with all details that you need to make an informed decision about your medical devices. This service is particularly useful for medical equipment lease companies and lease holders themselves to maximise financial return and minimise extraneous expense.

Medical Equipment Repair

We repair most types of medical equipment, offering a 72-hour turnaround on equipment brought to the Hilditch Group’s medical engineering department. Our engineers can also repair medical devices on location. Repairs follow a two-stage process; equipment is first assessed by our engineers and a report produced with a quote for the repair itself. Once the work is agreed by the client then the repair can be carried out. All of our repairs are guaranteed for 3 months.

Data Wiping

Our data cleansing service securely removes confidential patient identifiable data (PID) from medical equipment that complies with ICO Guidelines. Many medical devices have data stored on their hard drives. Simply destroying the hard drive renders the equipment unusable and hugely decreases the resale value. The Data Protection Act applies stringent rules to the sale of assets that may contain personal data therefore all devices that hold PID must be data wiped prior to any sale that we hold. We provide full certification for the data wiping services that we provide and we also offer secure collection and storage of equipment prior to processing.

Inventories & Assessments

Our medical engineers and valuers provide a complete inventory service, or can simply verify your current inventory and is designed to keep an over view on large amounts of medical equipment. Using our asset management system, we compile an inventory and barcode all your equipment, ensuring quick and accurate identification. Our system stores all test results for individual items of equipment and can automatically schedule our engineers to visit, ensuring that your equipment is always regularly serviced. Our inventory service includes the collation of large amounts of condition reports on equipment, useful life and current values.


We can carry out the decontamination of most types of medical equipment and facilities. This service has proven useful in the past for institutions such as nursing homes. Our fully certified contamination services comply with the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA DB2003(05)) standard.
