Yorkshire Care Equipment has invested in 30,000 sq ft additional warehouse space and increased its manufacturing and stock levels in response to the UK’s ongoing health crisis.
The investment by the healthcare supplier of over 45 years is designed to enable the ramping up of supply equipment, including care beds, mattresses, specialist seating, furniture and other key equipment required for care in the community.
Tristan Hulbert, Managing Director at Yorkshire Care Equipment, said: “Our health and social care system are facing unprecedented demand. It’s more important than ever that we come together to support our brilliant NHS and frontline care workers.
“We’ve worked alongside NHS Trusts, local authorities, care professionals, and patients for many years, providing equipment to ensure a smooth transition from hospital stay to community or at-home care. When we saw the discharge targets, we knew there was going to be a huge demand for community care equipment.
“Taking care of people and ensuring they have the best possible quality of life has always been the Yorkshire Care way. So, we immediately set about adapting the business so we could help. Our team will be on-hand whenever and wherever to handle enquiries and get equipment delivered to those in need.”
In line with the government’s ‘COVID-19 Hospital Discharge Service Requirement’, hospitals must submit daily reports on the numbers of patients discharged. Over 15,000 patients were discharged in the last week of March and hospitals are expected to maintain this flow.
Yorkshire Care Equipment has large stocks available now and is accepting all community equipment requests.
