This week, the John Sykes Foundation received a personal call from the lead consultant of Reading's A&E and Covid-19 departments, Dr. Omar Nafousi, and asked if we could urgently supply 500 pens for his staff as this had been identified as a key way to stop the virus spreading in the department and hospital. In our efforts to help as much as we can, we jumped on this straight away and today his team took delivery of the pens!
Dr. Nafousi was grateful for this to be organised so quickly and further commented, “Thank you to the John Sykes Foundation for our pens. They will be used, and remain, in our HOT (Covid-19) department, so staff don't have to use their own pens [from home]. This will aid us, in further minimising, the risk of spreading the virus outside of our department”.
