CHG-MERIDIAN has supported our Healthcare customers for over 40 years; elevating care through innovative finance solutions and providing access to the latest medical technologies, enabling hospitals and clinics alike to provide better patient care. Our cutting-edge finance concepts and tailored Managed Equipment Service solutions help the wider NHS, private and independent medical organisations to streamline the process of acquiring much needed medical equipment – with a focus on shaping a sustainable future across the healthcare spectrum whilst saving hospitals valuable time and resources.
Trying to find a balance between having the latest healthcare equipment whilst effectively managing your budget is an all too real problem for many hospitals within the UK. Here at CHG-MERIDIAN we aim to help our customers acquire today’s healthcare technology with tomorrow’s budget. How exactly do we achieve this? Using our expert knowledge, we can help you realise the options available to you. Our flexible, creative financial solutions is the heartbeat behind everything we do. However; we are more than just a healthcare finance provider who simply provides you with an interest rate. We want to understand your business, your pain points and ultimately provide you with a full solution package that covers the entire asset lifecycle.
A residual value lease is one of the most common types of agreements our customers take advantage of. A residual value lease allows for the use of an asset but the lease term is short compared to the useful life of the asset. As a result, we take a residual value on the asset meaning the sum of the rentals will be typically less than the original capital cost.
A finance lease is another common lease agreement our customers can utilise. A finance lease is typically a full pay out agreement, this means that the sum of the rentals includes the full capital cost of the equipment, plus the interest accrued. In this sense a finance lease works in very much the same way as a loan i.e. you will normally fully pay out the cost of the equipment during the lease period.
Raise capital budget and unlock the value of existing equipment. This model allows you to sell your existing assets that you own and lease it back in either an operating or finance format.
Under this model, the overall cost of procuring and using the medical equipment is broken down by individual case of treatment by dividing the rental by the pre-determined minimum number of uses.
Benefit from the latest healthcare technology with an always on solution that includes a guaranteed equipment uptime, regular maintenance and equipment/consumable replacement for a known fixed annual fee.
Acquire your equipment today and defer payments to the following financial year. The perfect solution for those customers who require an urgent supply of equipment but don’t have the necessary capital for the current financial year.
Structure your payments to align with the income you receive for your patient service.
Example Rental Payments
Year 1: £50,000 Year 2: £55,000 Year 3: £60,000

“The machinery would usually cost in excess of £2 million and would have taken several years to raise the funds. It is exceedingly good news for future patients who will benefit from minimally invasive surgery with less pain and quicker recovery times. As of now the robot has been in use for nearly 6 months and a substantial number of patients have seen the benefits of it. CHG-MERIDIAN’s help has been greatly appreciated and we could not have achieved the success that we have without their assistance”
