During the Covid-19 Corona Virus global pandemic, we recognise that there are hundreds of thousands of charities and businesses amongst many more organisations that are being majorly affected, through no fault of their own in the UK alone. We are extremely conscious of this and feel it is our duty to help other organisations where we can during these trying times.
North East Rider Volunteers Scotland (NERVS) - a charity formed in May 2018, provide free transportation of items such as medical samples, treatments, equipment and much more to the National Health Service. Last month we were contacted by NERVS to ask if it would be possible to help in obtaining a secure transport solution so that their Volunteers could secure any items that were carried by them. We felt it only right to donate some of our Insulated Pathology Medical carriers to assist this great cause.
Neil Powers, Founder/Chairman of NERVS said “We were astounded to receive the 10 sealable carriers with security seals as a very kind donation from the team and they have been put to good use already. As a registered charity we rely on the generosity of the public and various businesses to keep our Blood Bike group running, this huge donation by Versapak has gone a long way to help keep our service safe and secure.”
NERVS company mission is to deliver urgent medical samples, equipment and supplies between hospitals, healthcare sites and laboratories in the North East of Scotland when Healthcare Providers’ own transport services do not operate. They are financed entirely by donations and fundraising activity and say, “we couldn't do this without the support received from local businesses, groups and charitable bodies.”
Today, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the NHS is under even more pressure than ever to safeguard the UK health so being able to support a charity that can ease some of the pressure from our national health service is something we feel honoured to do.
We are also a key supplier to the NHS of medical carriers for sample and specimen collection and transport. Our carriers are used worldwide in hospitals and laboratories and out latest innovation, VersaShield Antimicrobial Technology is helping the global fight of preventing infections.
