As a London-based designer and manufacturer of uniforms for international clients, Jermyn Street Design [jSD] is doing all we can to help address the shortage of Personal Protection Equipment [PPE] within UK hospitals and other frontline health services. Many of our clients have been working selflessly to help tackle COVID-19. Our own resources, supply-chain and experience of all aspects of clothes at work puts us in a position to do our part too.
“Wearer well-being drives us at jSD, so the PPE shortage is a call we cannot ignore.” [jSD Managing Director Charlotte McHardy]
All our jSD staff are working remotely and have reached out to connect directly with NHS healthcare procurement teams on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis. We are doing four things:
· sourcing additional stocks of scrubs;
· connecting procurement to additional suppliers of isolation coveralls and N95 masks;
· identifying manufacturers with the capacity to produce more of these items;
· and working with our international supply chain to switch manufacture where feasible.
Any organization in the frontline of COVID-19 health provision and in urgent need of PPE can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. Our support services, logistics and supply chain teams will do all we can to help. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.
