Supporting the NHS with Oxygen Concentrators
Tuesday, May 26, 2020,8:41 am
Last month we mentioned that demand for portable oxygen concentrators was particularly high with increased enquiries due to the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak. We have been even busier since our last post and would like to share with you what we have been doing to support the NHS through this extremely tough and demanding time. As you will all be aware by now, Covid-19 or Coronavirus as it is most commonly known, has a particular impact on the lungs causing shortness of breath. For many this is manageable although uncomfortable, but for others it results in a requirement for help with breathing, initially by providing extra oxygen and ultimately for more serious cases, with the use of a ventilator.
Helping the NHS with oxygen supplies
As specialists in the supply of oxygen, the team at Pure O2 wanted to use our expertise, knowledge and supply chain experience to support the NHS wherever possible. We are aware that we all want to do our bit to support either our local community, our family and friends and those key workers on the front line. So, we are proud that our line of business allows us to help support the nation and our carers at this time. Using our existing network of oxygen concentrators suppliers we have been working extra hard to import an increased number of units of oxygen equipment specifically for the NHS.
Continuing supply of oxygen concentrators
You may be concerned that we won’t have any oxygen concentrators available for our customers as we support the wider NHS community. However, we can confirm that although supplies are extremely stretched, we do have stock of portable oxygen and oxygen concentrators. Please check our product pages on the website for the latest availability https://healthoxygen.com/product-category/portable-o2/.
Look out for each other
We appreciate that some of you will have been self isolating or shielding for over a month now which brings its own challenges. Hopefully with your portable oxygen concentrator provided by the friendly team at Pure O2 you are managing to potter round your gardens enjoying the spring flowers, or move freely around your home without feeling worried about shortness of breath. We want you to know that we are still here, open for business and working (whilst sitting further apart) to support our customers around the clock, as we always have done. Please bear with us as our phone lines have been busy but it is important to us that we don’t rush your call. Our team is keen to continue our friendly, expert service without compromising on quality even though the quantity of calls has increased considerably from what we would normally expect. We wish you all well and urge you all to keep to the Government guidelines and stay safe. You can still contact us in the normal way, either through our website https://healthoxygen.com/contact-us/ or by calling us on our 24 hour helpline on 0870 712 0202, or our UK freephone number (9am – 5pm) on 0800 145 5902 or alternatively if you are calling from overseas you can use our international number +44 (0)161 747 2617.
