Story

Covid Crisis Rescue (CCR) is providing critical services to help the fight against COVID-19 across the UK - and has been doing so on a daily basis since March thanks to supporters of this page.

Our initiatives include:

i) the provision of PPE to frontline workers;

ii) a 'Covid Cab' service transporting those in need to hospital;

iii) a free, 24/7 loan and delivery service of oxygen saturation probes.

We are reliant on donations to do this work and will continue to provide these services for as long as we have the resources to do so.

Examples of what your donations can buy (more info below):

Just £7 will enable us to protect a frontline worker with full PPE - mask, gown, gloves, visor.

Surgical masks: 40p, Surgical gowns: £4, Face visors: £2.50, Gloves: 10p

£16 each for an oxygen saturation probe

TESTIMONIALS

Thank you so much for providing us with essential PPE when we needed it the most. The GPs , nurses and HCAs feel so much safer knowing they will be able to care for their patients but also keep themselves safe during this very uncertain time. Not sure how you have achieved this so quickly but we couldn’t be more thankful.

NHS GP, Central London

CCR has been a big support. Feeling psychologically safe as well as physically safe has been important to us during this difficult time and CCR has helped the team feel closer.

Dr, Connie Smith, NHS GP

Just want to say thank you once again. All the ward staff were extremely grateful and appreciative of the donations. I am so happy to see such generosity in these challenging times.

NHS JUNIOR DOCTOR, Ealing

The work this team is doing provides vital equipment to frontline staff who haven’t got the appropriate equipment to do their jobs safely.

NHS CARDIOLOGIST, South West London

Thank you so much. It really is an amazing and generous gift.

NHS PRACTICE MANAGER, Central London

I contacted Alex about the type of PPE we felt we needed for our surgery . He promised me we would get it and we did. Thank you for being so reliable and thanks to every donor out there.

Dr. Neil Brownlee, GP, Leeds

What we are using funds raised for:

1) PPE & MEDICAL DEVICES

Procured by us and donated directly to frontline workers, our average delivery times are: London: 1-2 hours; rest of the UK: 1-2 working days.

2) OXYGEN SATURATION PROBE 24-HOUR LOAN & DELIVERY SERVICE

In collaboration with The Royal Free Hospital, The Bike Shed and RE:ACT Disaster Response, we deliver oxygen saturation probes to patients within 90 minutes in order to aid self-assessment and REMOTE assessment of Covid symptoms, thereby mitigating the impact on our emergency services.

Hotline number: 01938820788

3) 'COVID CAB' SERVICE

In collaboration with Simcha Cars, we transport patients with Covid symptoms to and from medical appointments in London.

Telephone: 020 8802 1515

4) Protecting and supporting the most vulnerable and marginalised, who are disproportionately affected by the pandemic, namely:

   i)    those suffering due to domestic abuse

   ii)   the homeless

   iii)  those with mental health conditions

   iv)  refugees
