British company appeal to NHS as they create desperately needed PPE face shields for frontline staff – The Sun

A BRITISH company has directly appealed to NHS Trusts to contact them after they created desperately needed PPE face shields for frontline staff.

Toby Martin, Creative Services Director of Dorset based firm Mauveworx, called on bosses to contact the company after they successfully delivered thousands of their newly created and CE certified Medworx full face shields to Poole General hospital.

The printing firm realised they had the resources to manufacturer the much needed PEE equipment shortly after the UK was placed into lockdown.

Speaking to The Sun’s Executive Editor Dan Wootton on his talkRADIO Drivetime show this evening, Toby explained: “We’ve developed the face shield, had it certified and we’re producing 10,000 a week.

“By next week we hope to be producing 20,000 facial shields a week. The NHS has a website where you can upload what you can offer. While that has been simple, the hardest part has been contacting the hospitals that need it.

“We have already delivered to Poole hospital. But now we’re trying to make contact with hospitals who need this kit.”

Directly appealing to NHS trusts across the company, Toby added: “If you need PPE, we have supplied 50,000 bits of kit so far.

“We have made a new website, it’s – you can contact us there and put your orders in.”

Toby and his team at Mauveworx, who employ 128 people, came up with the idea of developing the PEE equipment when the country went into lockdown.

He explained: “Our business had all the skillsets and when we put our heads together, we said, ‘How can we help the NHS frontline?’

“Last week we were putting together ideas and then getting friends and families of GPS and hospital workers in Poole to trial them and see if they worked.

“We developed it from them, we got it certified and now we have a fit to purpose product – we just need to spread the message.

“The NHS trusts are paying for them. The kit is exactly what they need. We just need to make them aware of what we are making.

“This is a direct plea to those listening, we have the PPE kit you need and we are making more.”
