    Story

    The devastating effects of COVID-19 on Wuhan, Italy and around the world are unprecedented, and it has become clear that doctors and nurses are catching the virus at work with terrible effects. In Italy 20% of healthcare workers are infected and 70 doctors have died.

    We are providing front line clinical staff with better PPE to try and keep them safe at work. The aim is that doctors and nurses looking after COVID-19 patients all have an FFP2 or FFP3 mask, visor or eye protection, and gown or coverall.

    We are now working in partnership with a number of groups including The Doctors Association UK and NHS Help for Heroes.

    Using the DAUK https://www.nhsppe.com/ app and direct communications we are mapping where the gaps are and which clinical staff we can support.

    Who are we?

    The Let’s Beat COVID-19 Team are all working as volunteers led by Dr Asif Qasim, Founder of MedShr, a medical network that connects over one million doctors in 190 countries. The MedShr team are working pro bono with FarFetch, the British Fashion Council and a team of volunteers to source and transport PPE to where it is needed.

    Disclaimer: All items of personal protective equipment (PPE) are donated free of charge, and 'as is', to help NHS clinical staff. End users must ensure that the specifications of such PPE is suitable for the purpose and environment in which it will be used. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, statutory, or otherwise, including but not limited to any warranties of merchantability, non-infringement, and fitness for particular purpose.

      Thank you to everyone who has donated! We have been distributing PPE to doctors, nurses and care staff and working in collaboration with The Doctors Association UK who have developed nhsppe.com to capture where the gaps are for NHS staff. In partnership with NHS Hero Support we have been getting masks and visors to staff across the UK. We're also looking at how we can support security and transport staff who are at very high risk of serious illness from COVID19. Coming soon our own KN95 masks - to be donated to frontline staff!
