What Healthcare Assets Do CHG-MERIDIAN Finance?

Flexible, creative financial solutions

Our approach to flexible asset finance across the markets will typically be based on one of the following solutions:


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

  • Increased Harmony – By having the latest innovations available to staff you can ensure the best working environment possible.

“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”
