NHS Covid-19 plea sees medical fetish store donating its hospital scrubs

Posted on 30 Mar 2020

Online medical fetish store Medfet - which stocks more than 250 medical-grade products - has played its part in the battle against coronavirus by donating its entire stock of hospital scrubs to the NHS.


The move came after NHS chief commercial officer Emily Lawson said in a press release: “We need massively increased, urgent volume of these supplies to the frontline in this exceptional set of circumstances.”

Posting on twitter, Medfet said: “Today we donated our entire stock of disposable scrubs to an NHS hospital. It was just a few sets, because we don’t carry large stocks, but they were desperate, so we sent them free of charge.


“When you see someone from the government saying the NHS is getting what it needs, that is a LIE.

“We have been contacted this week by representatives of NHS procurement all over the country, trying to source basic protective equipment and clothing.”
