The medical technology company said the consignment will shortly be shipped to a holding and distribution facility managed by the Ministry of Defence.
In the last few days, Inspiration Healthcare has also extended its 24-hour helpline facility for clinical staff at all UK hospitals.
The helpline gives hospital staff access to qualified personnel employed by Inspiration who are able to give instructions on the setting up of ventilators correctly and also how to deal with any other issues which may arise during their use. This service is now offered to all ventilators supplied to the NHS through the UK government’s ventilator challenge.
Neil Campbell, Inspiration Healthcare’s chief executive officer, said it had been “a considerable challenge” for the company getting its hands on the ventilators due to the unprecedented world demand and the fragility of the whole supply chain.
“We will now quickly make sure they reach their final destinations so that they can be put to good use in the NHS. We are also pleased to have extended the Inspiration Healthcare 24 hour helpline which will give clinicians access to immediate information to ensure the ventilators can operate as effectively as possible,” Campbell added in a statement.
