Solihull School donates visors to medical staff

Solihull Editorial 12th May, 2020 Updated: 12th May, 2020   0

SOLIHULL School, an independent school on Warwick Road, has donated protective visors to private hospital Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital, located near Leamington.

The Nuffield hospital said it had stocks of PPE but the school’s visors would boost supplies.

All private hospitals in the UK are currently being run under contract by the NHS amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A spokeswoman for Solihull School said: “Our sincere thanks go to Solihull School’s Design and Technology Department and, in particular, Mr Gareth James. In the true spirit of the school’s motto “Perseverantia”, Mr James went in to school with his wife and two small children to make 77 visors for Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital. The Solihull School community has also donated to other organisations.”




Pamela Smith, Matron at Nuffield Health Warwickshire hospital said: “Whilst the hospital has sufficient PPE, we have an ever-growing number of staff who require masks and visors to fulfil their roles and, whilst we are seeing and treating NHS patients, we did not want to further deplete stocks if there were alternatives. Thank you to Solihull School for helping us”

The visors are going to be used by staff around the hospital, in the outpatient department and on the ward, as well as for temperature checking of all patients and staff.


Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital said it was working for three local NHS trusts, South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT), University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and George Eliot Hospital, Nuneaton to become the county-wide hub for breast cancer services, including appointments, diagnostics and surgery.
