We have worked with Hilditch for a number of years due to their good service and market-leading approach to medical equipment auctions. They are always willing to go the extra mile. We know we can rely on Hilditch to offer a good value service to our hospitals.

Senior Capital Buyer, Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

From start to finish the service we get from Hilditch is always very professional.
Dawn Johnson
Procurement Disposals Officer, York Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust 

Just wanted to say big thanks to you and your team. 

The decommissioning of the old hospital and collection of equipment for auction went very smoothly. Your team  were extremely  professional, efficient and polite at all times.  Nothing was too much trouble even down to the unexpected demolition of part of a wall to remove equipment.  It meant that we managed to keep to our  deadline and hand over the old site on time. Their meticulously attention to detail has  meant  we have a  very clear easy to follow audit trail of the equipment that has been removed from site, sent for auction and  the pre and post sales notification.  

Frances Bambury

Relocation & Commissioning Officer, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

All staff  I have had contact with in my 24 years of working here have been most helpful, considerate, professional and go over and above what I expect from a customer. Nothing is too small or large for them to look into for me. A great company to deal with. 
Moira Crow
EBME, Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust

"We have used Hilditch for over 16 years now. This in itself is testament to the level of unfaltering, quality knowledge and professionalism the team all consistently deliver.

Thanks to their dedication to the services they provide, we have managed to recoup money from otherwise redundant equipment. This has enabled us to re-invest said monies in the form of purchasing additional equipment, for the greater benefit of our patients.

In light of this, I would have no hesitation in recommending Hilditch Group to anyone.".
Holly Mamone 

Operational & Office Manager, Medical Device Management Services, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

"Our site clearances were executed to a very high standard thanks to the professional and skilful approach undertaken by Hilditch. I would not hesitate to use them again to manage our future site clearances".
Karen Shrimpton

Commissioning Manager, Capital Projects, North Bristol NHS Trust

"Just wanted to say thank you to you and the team for the professional and helpful service you all provided with our recent collection".
John Luffman
Purchasing Manager, Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

"It really has been a pleasure dealing with you all; you have made the process so easy for me at a very difficult and busy time for the Trust. I know that we have tested you sometimes, but you always came through for us - can you pass my thanks on to all of your team."
Helen Fowler
Equipment Procurement Programme Manager, University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust

"Hilditch have assisted the Trust with the sale of numerous redundant medical devices. Hilditch were very active in obtaining the best price for the Trust and were always on hand should we have any queries in relation to the removal of large devices. I can confirm that all of the dealings that we have had with Hilditch Group have always been of a professional manner and all members of staff that have represented the company have always been friendly, courteous and helpful. The Trust is happy in recommending their services to other Trusts".
Amanda Hill
Medical Engineering Manager, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust

"We have been using Hilditch for 10 years and have been very satisfied with the service. The development of online auctions and the introduction of an engineering inspection service has brought new advantages to the process (a better description of devices and access to wider market will achieve higher value at sale). The service gives an Equipment Manager confidence that maximum value is being released from disposal of equipment and the process works very efficiently".

John McGinty
Equipment Manager, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

"In spite of the challenges that faced you, I must say that the whole process was carried out with extreme care and attention paid to every detail and completed in a timely manner, which was duly appreciated by all."
David Rickard
Decommissioning Manager, Barking, Havering & Redbridge Hospitals NHS Trust

"I would like to thank you for the efficient management of the on-site auction. The project team managed the sale most efficiently, from the cataloguing of items to extensively publicising the event. I would not hesitate to recommend your services."
Philip Eke
General Manager, Nuffield Chesterfield Hospital

"I have no hesitation in recommending Hilditch to my professional colleagues in the other NHS Trusts"
Pamela Rowlston
Supplies, Southport & Ormskirk Hospitals NHS Trust

"The site clearance and sale of surplus equipment went like clockwork and the income generated produced an excellent result, all of which are directly attributed to the professionalism and skill of everyone concerned. The whole team performed with ‘military’ precision, which won praise and respect of staff at all levels."
Jim Scott
PFI Manager, Bromley Hospitals NHS Trust

"The time scales involved (with the clearance) were exceptionally tight and despite this lack of lead time, we are very pleased with the end results, both in terms of the value secured and the speed of clearance."
John Mortifee
Project Team, Siemens

"I was more than satisfied with the service provided. The onsite team worked well with the commissioning team, they were flexible and understanding of the problems of decommissioning."
Ruth Wailes
Commissioning Manager, Carlisle Hospitals NHS Trust

"I would like to say how impressed I was with your efficient and professional services, from the collection of the equipment right through to the sale and subsequent speedy receipt of the cheque."
Dennis Dooley

Jane Hughes
Project Office, Greenwich Healthcare

"I would like to record my appreciation of the professional and efficient manner in which you carried out the removal and sale of the items. A disposal exercise which could have become a nightmare, instead with your help was handled in a calm and calculated manner, with a minimum of fuss and trouble."
Roy Sweeny
Supplies, Tayside University Hospitals NHS Trust

"I would like to thank you and your team most sincerely for your assistance with the Mount Carmel Hospital project, which ended up totally fulfilling our clients requirements both in terms of above expected realisation and on time vacating of the property, allowing timely closure of the real estate sale.

In terms of service, you efficiently provided us with "exactly what it said on the tin" which added immense benefit to the assignment and greatly shared the work load.

In short, it was a pleasure to work with yourself and your team and hopefully we will have the opportunity to work together again in the future".
