You are probably aware that the Hilditch Group is a key sponsor of the Amalthea Trust, and that we provide volunteers to assist in the running of the charity and in teaching biomedical engineering courses. However, you may not be aware that we donate over 7% of our company profits to fund the trust. We founded the charity after visiting Africa and becoming aware that it was not the shortage of medical equipment that was the principal problem with delivering healthcare, but the shortage of medical equipment that was in working order. Over the years, huge quantities of equipment have been donated to Africa; however there is simply not the expertise to maintain the equipment, and no one to provide training on how to use it. As a charity, we rely on NHS volunteer engineers to deliver the courses. We are always happy to talk about the Trust and current projects so please feel free to contact us.

The Amalthea Trust’s objectives are as follows:

  • To assist with the provision and maintenance of medical equipment and support systems to less economically developed countries.
  • To help provide for the sustainable maintenance of medical equipment through the provision of training programmes for the recipients.
