I have hired medical equipment from Medical Hire for various contemporary prime time TV dramas over a number of years. The equipment is always of a high standard, well maintained & in good working order.
Chloe & the team are very knowledgeable on medical matters & will act as on set advisors when required.

A huge thank you to Pam, Chloe & all the team at Medical Hire. Throughout our Production we have received so much help with all our dressing prop requirements.
Often with changing schedules, continuity & their extensive medical knowledge thankfully they managed to accommodate all requests. I can highly recommend & look forward to future projects working with Medical Hire.

Helpful and informative
During December 2020 and January 2021 we scheduled to shoot for a tv show in Barcelona with many key scenes in a hospital, including an ICU area. Initially we were looking for hospital furniture and props in Spain but we couldn’t find everything we needed. Unfortunately there is not a prop house that specializes in medical equipment here in Spain and being in the middle of a pandemic didn’t help.
So we decided to reach out to medical prop houses in UK. From the beginning Medical Hire seemed the best option. Their staff were very helpful and provided us with all the information we needed. Together with them we prepared a list of medical equipment and props for our different sets and scenes.
Beyond the Covid-19 pandemic, we faced another challenge: Brexit. All materials had to be shipped to Barcelona before Brexit came into effect and returned after new customs regulations came in place. Information on customs new rules was scarce and it was really hard to navigate the evolving situation. Fortunately, the staff at Medical Hire were very diligent and helpful. With their assistance we managed to dodge all difficulties. The shipment of all materials and equipment to Barcelona and back was on schedule and without any customs issues.
All the medical equipment we received was exactly as described, very well taken care of and fully functional for film: ICU beds, vital signs monitors with simulators, ventilators, docking stations, space stations, drips, syringe drivers, etc. All equipment came with detailed instructions on how to operate it and the staff at Medical Hire were always available to solve any question we had on the phone.
Our Hospital sets were a great success and the Production Designer was very pleased with the result. The shooting went very smoothly and we were able to pull out complicated scenes involving medical equipment without a problem.
We are very pleased with the collaboration with Medical Hire and would totally recommend it for all your medical equipment needs for film and tv,
Thank you Chloe and Pam for everything.
Efficient and helpful
Really efficient and helpful. Always there for any last minute requests, and really understand the tight deadlines and schedule changes.
Detailed and precise
A wealth of knowledge
I have known and worked with Chloe and her team for many years. They have always provided expert advice and service on all the productions I have been involved with, providing props and dressing for sets as well as providing expert medical staff to be with us in an advisory capacity for any filming requirements.
Chloe and her team have a wealth of knowledge in the medical field and have always been quick and happy to help with any enquiry no matter how big or small.
They are a happy team always there to help and it will be a pleasure to work with them on any future productions I am involved with which require their expertise.
Just wanted to thank you for your professional service, in dealing with our ever changing requests
The sets worked wonderfully.
Thank you so much!
Thanks to you, Lindsey and Rachelle. We quite literally wouldn’t have done it without you all!
Safe trip home and no doubt we’ll be in touch in the future.
All the best,
