About Us

Medical Industry Ltd was established in July 2017; taking over the running of the MIA (Medical Industry Accredited*) service on behalf of the ABHI (Association of British HealthTech Industries).

Opening our office in Tonbridge, Kent, we were delighted to be able to bring on board the complete team who had been running MIA for the previous 5 years. We have now moved our offices to Eridge, Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

In January 2018 due to customer demand we launched our e-learning courses, providing the healthcare industry with a whole suite of training that support the MIA service and other credentialing systems, enabling the users to purchase their MIA and training in one transaction from a single supplier.

An example of some of the courses that have supported the MIA service include Codes of Conduct, Aseptic Techniques, Theatre Access, Acute Care and we also offer e-learning courses for developing a better understanding of the NHS (i.e., structure, finance and commissioning). Our courses are written and updated adhering to industry requirements.

We additionally offer companies the opportunity to have their own company courses specifically for their users to take, uploaded onto Medical Industry Ltd, again allowing the users and company to use one single supplier. If this is something you would be interested in, please contact us to find out more. 

Accrediting bodies include the European Operating Room Nurses Association (EORNA), the Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP), EduQual and the Royal College of Nursing.

MIA offers two services to two different audiences.

Supplier Companies

For supplier companies and representatives, MIA offer their full suite of online training courses, along with an appointment booking system - to ensure that all those visiting a hospital within the UK remain compliant with the wishes of the hospital.

MIA's dedicated Customer Service Team will walk each representative through the process of getting a card, from beginning to end.

NHS and Private Healthcare Providers

For NHS and Private hospitals, MIA give access to the appointment booking system, so that Procurement, Theatre and Healthcare Teams are aware who is onsite at any one time.

MIA also work directly with the hospitals to ensure that visiting supplier company representatives remain compliant with their requirements, whether this be a Basic or Enhanced DBS, Hepatitis B inoculation, or other vaccination requirements.
