Healthcare supplier Yorkshire Care Equipment has invested in 30,000ft2 of additional warehouse space in order to support safe at-home and community care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The investment will allow the company to rapidly supply equipment nationwide. The company’s goal is to deliver the care beds, mattresses, specialist seating, furniture, and other key equipment urgently required for people to be safely and comfortably cared for in the community.

In line with the government’s ‘COVID-19 Hospital Discharge Service Requirement’, hospitals must submit daily reports on the numbers of patients discharged.  Over 15,000 patients were discharged in the last week of March and hospitals are expected to maintain this flow.

Tristan Hulbert, managing director at Yorkshire Care Equipment, said: “Our health and social care system are facing unprecedented demand. It’s more important than ever that we come together to support our brilliant NHS and frontline care workers.

“We’ve worked alongside NHS Trusts, local authorities, care professionals, and patients for many years, providing equipment to ensure a smooth transition from hospital stay to community or at-home care. When we saw the discharge targets, we knew there was going to be a huge demand for community care equipment.
