Asset finance broker launches NHS equipment buying scheme

By Alejandro Gonzalez

Midlands Asset Finance (MAF), a national brokerage business based in Derbyshire, has launched a scheme to help finance NHS equipment.

Under the scheme, where a new customer is introduced by a participating professional services provider (accountants currently), the MAF will donate 15% of the income they earn on every completed transaction, the company said in a statement.

The donations will be put into a central NHS ‘pot’ and distributed amongst a variety of NHS Trusts to purchase or finance the equipment.

The rewards point scheme, run by Cordoba Rewards, will allow MAF’s new businesses clients to nominate their preferred NHS Trusts, MAF said.

After speaking to the selected Trusts, MAF would then arrange to purchase the equipment that has been chosen and arrange for its delivery.

MAF said the scheme would be ongoing and is not necessarily tied to the coronavirus emergency the country is experiencing, the broker said.

Stewart Good, director and head of professional services, said: “Being married to a frontline worker in the NHS, I fully understand the importance of having access to the latest technology and equipment to ensure the best possible care can be provided, both now and in the future.

“All contributions – no matter how small – add up, and just one piece of equipment at a hospital can make a massive difference to those in need.”

Dave Chapman, MAF director, said: “As a business, we’re really proud of what we’re trying to achieve with this scheme.

“This is about professional sectors coming together to help a service that continues to stoically serve this country, before and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It is so important that we continue to provide ongoing support to small businesses so they can access cash to survive and rebuild their future, too.

“By working with our professional contacts, we can help more businesses whilst also giving something back to the NHS and its staff.”
