Providing PPE to the NHS
Our wonderful DT teacher Mr Roscoe has now completed his first batch of PPE face visors in our technology department.
Our wonderful DT teacher Mr Roscoe has now completed his first batch of PPE face visors in our technology department. An initial batch of 30 has been distributed to the NHS, with a further batch of 25 which he will be finishing at home.
Graham saw what our NHS staff were doing to help protect lives and felt compelled to do what he could to help in any way possible.
He said, ‘It seemed crazy that we had all this equipment sat idle when I could be putting my skills to use to help people on the frontline. Design came from discussion from DT teachers online wanting to get involved and join the fight against this virus in any way they could. A company then came up with a laser cut design for those departments who were struggling to 3D print visors to speed up manufacture. I've been inundated with responses and thanks and I am now looking at ramping up production next week thanks to school providing the materials’.
The visors have made their way to Arrowe Park Hospital and we understand are already being used on the front line. These pictures were provided by staff in the A&E department, who were extremely grateful to Graham and the school.
We are now searching for more stock of PVC to allow Graham to continue production - obviously the school is paying for all materials. Follow @MrRoscoeDT on Twitter to see how he is getting on.
