Crawley business wins their largest ever order for ventilators as demand over COVID-19 continues



A business who has headquarters in Manor Royal, Crawley has won their largest ever single order for the immediate supply of ventilators.

Inspiration Healthcare Group plc, which is a global medical company says it has received and order from the NHS for ventilators that totals £1.25 million.

They say that this is a direct response to the preparations being made by the Dept of Health and Social Care to deal with the COVID-19 situation in the UK.

Inspiration Healthcare say the order will be satisfied in the coming weeks and is for ventilators which are typically for use on adults in transport.

Neil Campbell, Inspiration Healthcare’s CEO commented:

“We are very pleased to have received this large order which is by far the largest single order we have ever had. Equally, we are pleased to have been able to be engaged with the DHSC regarding the UK’s preparedness planning against Covid-19.

However, we are only too aware of the fast changing nature of governmental controls being put in place around the world in response to the spread of the virus and whilst we are working with our US supplier to achieve delivery as soon as possible we recognise that this may be subject to a number of factors which are outside of our control. Given this, and that we are at an early stage in the financial year, we remain cautious of how these factors may affect the markets in which we operate.”
