In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 10,000 items of critical medical equipment have been made available to the NHS frontline including oxygen concentrators provided by Intermedical.
This huge logistical operation spanned across three months reaching the operations final milestone on Tuesday 30th June. It involved the MOD’s procurement arm Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) working closely with Team Leidos (the MOD Delivery Partner) as well as the Department for Health and Social Care, NHS, Cabinet Office and PA Consultants.
Defence Minister Jeremy Quin said:
“I am proud of our dedicated logistics and delivery professionals who have made a significant contribution to the COVID 19 pandemic response. They have delivered a huge quantity of medical supplies right across the UK, ensuring our frontline NHS staff have the equipment they need to provide life-saving medical care.
Their professionalism and enthusiasm maintained the flow of critical equipment ever since this national endeavour to support the UK Government’s response to COVID-19 started on March 30.”
Intermedical is the UK’s leading provider of portable and home oxygen therapy equipment. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have provided home oxygen concentrators to thousands of users across the UK to aid home nursing of the virus.
