Saving lives by building a world class, end-to-end, supply system so NHS staff can safely care for COVID-19 patients

In Intensive Care Units special “fitted” masks, FFP3 respirators, are the gold standard for keeping healthcare workers safe. These are the only masks that allow workers to breathe clean, safe air whilst caring for COVID-19 patients. 

The health service in the UK is the country’s largest employer with over 600,000 clinical staff. Without these masks, many frontline clinical workers cannot work and lives would be at risk.

Demand for FFP3 masks increased by 43,103% while global availability plummeted. 

We saved lives and built a world class supply system to meet this challenge.
