Delta Medical International (DMI) is pleased to have provided help with PPE (personal protective equipment) for Coronavirus (Covid-19). We became aware that a number of groups were making protective scrubs for NHS staff, but that sourcing suitable material was often an issue. DMI therefore contacted a group near our Cheshire office and offered to donate some rolls of the fabric we use, which is specially rated for high temperature washing to NHS infection control standards.
The group, called Scrubs for Stoke, are an enthusiastic and experienced team who took up the challenge to make scrub suits, hats and wash bags for doctors and nurses after it became apparent there was a shortage of these items as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. The team have already turned some of Delta Medical’s material into a scrub top as shown and will continue to make scrub suits for the clinical staff at Staffordshire’s Royal Stoke and County hospitals.
Tracy Cushing, one of the organisers of Scrubs for Stoke, said: “We can’t wait to deliver these suits in the attractive, bright material to the clinical teams at the hospitals; we know the staff will absolutely love them.”
Delta Medical’s Sales & Marketing Director, Angie Haken, commented: “The Scrubs for Stoke group are the real stars here, they have already made over 1,000 sets of scrubs from donated material, but we are happy to have been able to contribute in some small way. We have been told more items in our material are on the way.”
DMI Managing Director, Nick Bettles, added: “As individuals we have always had great admiration for staff working in the NHS, but their dedication and selflessness during this pandemic takes that to another level. It is great to see groups like this taking the initiative to help in time of need.”
