Supporting our NHS heroes
As with many businesses across the UK, we are working hard to do everything we possibly can to support the NHS throughout the coronavirus crisis.
Those on the front line, working in Intensive Care and Covid-19 wards as well as in hospitals, GP surgeries and pharmacies are simply heroes that don’t wear capes and here are just a few ways we are helping them.
Set up in car parks and unused land, our accommodation units are being used as coronavirus testing pods. These portable testing clinics are vital to ensure those suffering symptoms can be seen, tested and given results away from not only the most vulnerable people in the community, but from all members of the public.
In times of crisis, quick and easy access to equipment is key. Most surgeries and hospitals have limited storage space available for essentials, so at a time when more than ever is needed, that’s where we come in.
Secure storage of medical equipment is vitally important to make sure this is used by the right people. Our units are secure and weatherproof and come in a variety of sizes so no matter how much additional space is needed for PPE secure storage, this can be on site and within easy reach whenever it is needed.
Medical facilities across the nation are finding ways to ensure patients not suffering Covid-19 symptoms stay that way so segregating coronavirus patients is a tactic many are taking to reduce risk.
Without spare wards, and due to the significant increase in cases, we are supporting hospitals, GP surgeries and other facilities by providing temporary wards made from our accommodation units.
They are insulated and have access to both power and water meaning they are warm, comfortable and when placed in an outside space, enable direct patient care without accessing other parts of the building.
We are doing all we can to support our NHS heroes who are working tirelessly, often away from family and on long shifts to keep the nation strong. Our units have been supplied to the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London for storage, at a hospital in Wakefield to be used as an NHS 111 Coronavirus Pod, and many others across the UK.
Stay home, protect the NHS, save lives.
