Inwards (Donated) Goods

We welcome your donations of goods.  We stock almost every medical item you can imagine, from a scalpel blade up to a hospital bed.

Please don’t send us goods that are out-of-date, as many countries refuse to accept expired products.  But if you want to donate something and you are not sure, send it anyway.  Our team of professionals will always check it over for suitability.  If you have any questions, email us, using:
