Manchester-based pharmaceutical company, Chiesi Ltd, donates personal protective equipment (PPE) across England

Local pharmaceutical company, Chiesi Limited, has donated much needed personal protective equipment (PPE) to over 140 critical care units across England, including  South Manchester GP Federation to help protect healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. The donated PPE has come from Chiesi’s Chippenham research and development centre which, having staff engaged in developing respiratory products for clinical trials, use similar protective equipment to that required by healthcare professionals working in the NHS.

 

Chiesi’s PPE donations include:

  • 50 FFP3 protective masks
  • 15,900 protective gloves
  • 285 Tyvek protective suits
  • 400 overshoes
  • 15,500 visors

 

Tom Delahoyde, Managing Director of Chiesi Ltd. in the UK and Ireland, said, “We are thankful for the NHS staff and volunteers who are on the frontlines during this pandemic. We respect their courage and selflessness to help those in need, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to donate these PPE to assist in protecting them during this challenging time.”

 

This donation comes as Chiesi continues to use its resources to contribute to the fight against the international health crisis both in the UK and globally – introducing new measures to support employees, patients and healthcare providers in response to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

 

To date, Chiesi Ltd support and donations in the UK include:

  • A number of employees volunteering across the UK to support the NHS
  • Donation and diversion of head office fruit delivery to a local Manchester foodbank
  • Donations to each of the seven schools across the UK where Chiesi supports a breakfast club, so food parcels can be collated and sent out to the most vulnerable families
  • Donation of PPE to over 140 critical care units across England
