Could you help me find a IV stand to hire in or around SE1? My father in law is visiting from Greece for a couple of nights this coming weekend to have a check-up with his surgeon. He needs to be fed through parenteral nutrition (through his veins) as his small intestine has been completely removed. Therefore we need to get an IV stand (to hang his nutrition bag and pump).
It seems silly to have to buy that stand for just a couple of nights. Do you have any idea if there is a medical supply company we could rent it from? We asked our local pharmacy, Guy's and St Thomas but they were unwiling to help.
