Creating New Opportunities

Robot Surgeon Lease is a work of heart

The hospital was formed after the creation of the National Health Service in 1948, although it became apparent that the existing resources would not be enough to cover the cost of all necessities and amenities required.


The NHS trust hospital knew there was a requirement for a Davinci Robot that would allow laparoscopic, also known as key hole, surgery to the most advanced levels available. At a cost of £1m, the trust required a leasing product to spread the costs over an agreed term.


CHG-MERIDIAN assisted the NHS hospital with the financial structuring of a lease to enable an immediate purchase, but also negotiated a long term maintenance agreement which ensured the lifetime costs would not increase.


The agreement for a fixed consumables cost, alongside a large discount from the manufacturer for a fast guaranteed order produced unprecedented savings on a project of this size. When the time comes to upgrade the Davinci Robot to the latest product, the hospital will be in a significantly better position to do so, as a valued client.

The urology department is very excited by this exceptional donation. It will allow shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery & better cancer outcomes. I just want to say a huge thanks to everyone who has helped with this project. This is a massive development for the surgeons, the hospital & the patients. I know how much effort everyone has made & I cannot believe the speed things have happened. It just shows what can be done when the right people are determined to achieve something.
