Servicing, Maintenance and Repair
Nobody would want to find themselves in a situation where vital
pressure care equipment stops working, causing discomfort and distress to the very vulnerable people who rely on it to protect them.
At Select Medical, we offer servicing, maintenance and repair of not only our own pressure care equipment, but most other major manufacturers, as a stand alone service to NHS Trusts, PCTs and care homes.
To comply with health and safety standards,
dynamic mattresses, pumps and
cushions should be subject to an annual safety check. Your pressure care equipment will also benefit from being regularly serviced to ensure it remains in good working order and ready whenever your patients need it most.
To keep disruption to both you and your patients or residents to an absolute minimum, we service equipment on your premises. Our team of qualified engineers only use genuine manufacturer’s parts and our charges are amongst the most competitive in the industry.

health and safety guidelines.
- Workshop repairs – If a piece of pressure care equipment needs repairing,
simply call us and we will collect from your premises, repair in our workshop
and deliver it back to you. You simply pay a one off fee per repair.
- Emergency breakdown callouts – Inevitably equipment will breakdown at the
most inconvenient times, putting patients’ health at risk. Our emergency
breakdown service is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our contracted
