Firstly, BPR Medical would like to express huge thanks to all NHS staff for their dedication and selflessness during these difficult times.
We extend this thanks to all our staff, who have demonstrated amazing determination and courage to meet the extraordinary demands being asked of us for oxygen equipment, while at the same time managing their personal concerns over the coronavirus.
Our supply chain partners have stood with us in solidarity with a willingness to do whatever is required to keep us supplied.
To you all….
COVID-19: What BPR Medical is doing and how
Since 1990, BPR Medical has been designing and manufacturing devices in the respiratory and gas control field with the vision of supporting health services and improving patient lives across hospital, primary care, and community settings.
Following the COVID-19 outbreak, our mission has not changed, and we are working even harder to develop and supply crucial products to support the health service as it works to save lives at this challenging time.
How is BPR Medical supporting the health service during the pandemic?
Many of BPR Medical’s products are being used on the frontline in hospitals in the fight against COVID-19 in order to regulate oxygen and provide respiratory support to critically ill patients.
We are keen to do whatever we can to support the global effort and are working with our customers both in the UK and abroad to deliver vital products in a fair, ethical way.
How is BPR Medical handling orders at this time?
As hospitals deal with the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, including setting up additional wards and assessment areas, we have experienced increased demand for some products. These include high pressure oxygen regulators and other equipment that can support patients with impaired respiratory capacity.
We are doing everything we can to adjust our inventory to address that increased demand.
If you have other non-urgent orders, we will do our best to fulfil them, however please be aware that you may experience delays during this time.
Furthermore, if you anticipate any large orders of BPR products, please contact us as soon as possible to enable us to forecast demand and deliver promptly.
The team can be reached on 01623 628 281 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
How is BPR Medical collaborating with innovators in the fight against COVID-19?
BPR Medical has the regulatory expertise and capability, the design and development teams, the project management disciplines, as well as the appropriate licences and certification, to help support innovators drive through new products to support the cause.
We are already involved in a number of workstreams set up by the Government to design and manufacture patient ventilators at scale (the Rapidly Manufactured Ventilator System).
If you need support in the engineering and manufacture of a new product, please contact us so that we can explore ways in which we may be able to assist.
What is BPR Medical doing to protect its employees?
People working as part of the health and social care supply chain, such as medical device manufacturer employees, have been classified as key workers by the Government. We are therefore adhering strictly to official guidance with regard to day-to-day operations.
The safety and protection of all our employees remains our top priority and we have therefore implemented additional measures to safeguard their wellbeing as well as that of our customers and patients.
In addition to our usual stringent health and safety procedures, all hospital visits have been postponed, access to our facilities by external visitors has been restricted to essential visits only and, where possible, staff are working remotely.
The importance of regular handwashing and enhanced hygiene procedures is regularly emphasised and any employee displaying flu or cold symptoms, or who lives in a household where another person displays symptoms, is being asked to self-isolate to prevent the risk of further infection.
We are doing everything we can to protect our employees while ensuring we continue to provide the best possible support to health services and other customers at this time.
