Medical Engineering



The Hilditch Group’s 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, including:

  • Long Term Maintenance of Medical Equipment - Our Planned Preventative Maintenance Contracts (PPMC's) provide healthcare establishments with the reassurance that their medical equipment is free of fault and working to the manufacturer's specification, reducing equipment downtime.
  • 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.
  • 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 and all of our repairs are guaranteed for 3 months.
  • Data Wiping - 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. Our data cleansing service securely removes confidential patient identifiable data (PID) from medical equipment that complies with ICO Guidelines.
  • 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.
  • Decontamination - We 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.
