Switch production to support South Yorkshire

On behalf of the Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis, the Local Enterprise Partnership and South Yorkshire Integrated Care System, we would like to offer a huge thank you to the many businesses within our region who are working hard to support the great national effort to increase supplies of PPE, however…

…we need more help

If any companies working in or around Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster can offer their support, we require the following items of critical PPE for frontline services in our area:

  • Users of 3D printers and manufacturers of plastic to help with the production of visors, gloves, face masks and
  • Textile workers or manufacturers to create scrubs and gowns.
  • Breweries or distilleries who can use their kit and alcohol supplies to make hand sanitiser, as well as new dispenser bottles.

If your business, or any of your contacts can support by manufacturing any of the above, please contact South Yorkshire Integrated Care System by emailing: england.syblocalityteam@nhs.net and confirming what equipment you can produce or support you can offer, full contact details and readiness and timescales.
