Project Endorsements

OpeMed provided a highly professional service throughout. They gave great pre-installation advice to ensure all or our daughter’s specialist equipment was seamlessly integrated within our home. All their work was finished to a very high standard, we couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of their work.
Rebecca Thursby, Quantity Surveyor

I write to thank you and your company for going the extra mile to get my job finished on the scheduled dates. Furthermore, Kelvin and Joe did an absolutely first class professional job, politely and with good humour. They left everything tidy and clean and showed me the operation of the hoist thoroughly and carefully. I could not have wanted a better job. Please convey my appreciation to Kelvin and Joe and pass my comments to senior management.

Thank you for your firm’s extremely kind and generous assistance with the construction of the Julia’s House Wiltshire Children’s Hospice. Your generous support, and your commitment to high quality, has helped create a stunning environment for the children and their families. Thank you again for playing a significant part in creating this new and vital service for children and families in great need.
Martin Edwards, CEO - Julia's House Children's Hospice

I have worked with OpeMed on numerous projects and their knowledge, expertise and willingness to go the extra mile are invaluable, particularly important in this complex project for Ellie. The combined practical, emotional and psychological impact of this suitability designed home has been truly incredible for Ellie and her family. This adapted environment has allowed Ellie to become independent with many activities, including being mobile indoors for the first time in her life. She is more lively, active and hugely motivated to “catch up” with all the usual life skills and tasks, which were impossible in her previous home. The OpeMed installation and equipment has facilitated a full care team to be employed and for Ellie’s Mum and brother to look forward to a life of their own, knowing that she is well supported

Maggie Downs, Independent Occupational Therapist

Big shout out to South Mimms service station. [The Changing Places] made our stop on a very long journey so much easier. It is our first time using a proper changing place, and it really makes a huge difference.

Dan Cliff, Essex

I have worked with OpeMed on multiple projects and their knowledge, realism and expertise have ensured a smooth, cost-effective installation of specialist equipment, even when our structures are complex.

Samantha Andrews, Senior Quantity Surveyor, Highwood Construction

OpeMed were consistent, thorough and supportive throughout the time they helped us to fix our ceiling hoist. From arranging an engineer visit to after sales/services care Judith from OpeMed provided a personal service that was quick, thoughtful and caring. This is a skill that is required, but unfortunately lacking within the caring profession. She is certainly a “good face” for your organisation and we appreciated her genuine support.
