With the help of Brunel University and The Bike Shed Community Response Team, we have been able to supply visors to pharmacy teams across Hillingdon and Harrow.
‘Made in Brunel’ is a student-led initiative that showcases Brunel’s design talent.
They have set up a network of 25 3D-printers in people’s homes and workplaces to produce the headband part of protective PPE visors, which a small team from the Department of Design at Brunel University turn into visors. These visors are made for frontline keyworkers and so far, they have supplied over 3000 visors to more than 50 different hospitals, care homes and medical centres, mainly in the local area.
The visors are being supplied free and their project is currently being funded through generous donations from companies and individuals. Further information or to make a contribution to their cause, please visit their donations page here.
The visors are really needed by the pharmacy teams during the pandemic, and we truly appreciate the tremendous work required to get them to us. We would like to thank Brunel University for supplying these to us at this crucial time.
The Bike Shed
With the help of The Bike Shed Community Response Team, who have DBS checked motor bike rider volunteers, the visors have been delivered to 56 pharmacies across Hillingdon and Harrow. Their volunteers are trained and available to help with individual or bulk medicine deliveries at the patient or pharmacy request. Please visit their page here for further information.
We would also like to thank The Bike Shed Community Response Team for all their help in making these vital deliveries to our pharmacy teams.
