Medical Hire is part of the Independence Mobility group of companies which was established over 12 years’ ago in 2004. Independence Mobility were renting equipment to hospitals, social services and private individuals but were one day approached by a TV company who had been let down by their current props supplier. The TV company had heard about our efficient and reliable service and asked if we would extend our service to provide medical equipment hire for use on TV.
Today, we operate a dedicated medical equipment hire service, providing a wide range of medical props for use on TV and films. In addition, we have a team of medical advisors from doctors, nurses and midwives through to physiotherapists and occupational therapists who can offer advice on scripts and story-lines and be present on-set on the day of filming to assist directors and actors.
We are privileged to have worked with some of the UK’s most popular TV shows providing medical equipment for key story-lines.
