Medical Equipment Available (Hounslow, West London) - Inco Pads, Shower Chair, Hoist Slings etc

Hi there, 

I have a number of leftover unused and sealed medical supplies plus some useful good condition disability equipment. The equipment was my mum's who passed away last year. I hope I can find someone in need who can make use of any of this stuff. Ideally I'd like someone to collect but happy to deliver in and around west London to someone in need. Everything will be sanitised before handing over. Please be aware I've put this stuff up for offer on a couple of other disability forums such as the MS Society. Please get in touch for more info. Thanks!

    Hi and welcome on board we dont really offer this sort of service. I suggest you contact adult social services or a local OH therapist 

    Or maybe British Red Cross as they supply aids like this and also collect, the medical supplies should be returned to a pharmacy however they will just dispose of them as they would not be reusab;le due to risk of them not being sterile

    Hi Janer1967, I forgot to say thank you for your reply and advice. 

    I have managed to find a home for some of the items through freegle. I am taking every precaution possible, with thorough hygiene protocols and not offering anything that isn't in sterile unopened packaging. I have offered to donate these supplies to many local care homes, individuals and public services with some limited success. 

    I will follow your advice about contacting charities with an international remit such as the Red Cross as for supplies like supra-pubic catheters and leg bags seem only destined for landfill in the UK. Thanks again for your advice.
