Our vendor partners use financing packages to boost the sale of medical equipment, strengthen their clients’ loyalty and manage second hand equipment values.

Our clients include doctors, dental and veterinary practices, opticians, public and private hospitals, laboratories (including dental labs), research institutes and universities and the types of medical equipment we typically fund include clinical IT solutions; ultrasound equipment; MRI and CT scanners; dental equipment; microscopes; ophthalmological equipment; endoscopy equipment; lasers and X-ray equipment.

Transaction size can range from £5k to £5m+. Depending upon the equipment type and term we are able to take residual value positions in equipment to deliver operating lease solutions.
