Please help us unite behind the NHS staff who are doing such a brave job, saving lives, and help keep those staff safe and out of harm’s way whilst doing their job, so that many more staff are not killed in the fight against this terrible virus. Shortages of PPE in the NHS are very well documented, but without them or if they become ill in any form, they’re taken away from the frontline. The BMA has joined that documented shortage with a call for a mass manufacturing effort in their press release just under a week ago on 3rd April 2020. Local schools and universities have already been active in stepping up to meet this call. A local company has stepped up and is forging ahead with mass production of PPE masks. A massive fundraising campaign has already raised close to an amazing £1.6 million for PPE for NHS staff. We have started production in the last few days of our own face masks, whilst other schools have already produced many so far, but there are some things holding us all back, which is where you might be able to please help us.
