The first devices from the Government’s ventilator challenge will roll off the production line this weekend, ahead of delivery to the NHS next week, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove has announced.
The news comes as many of the biggest names in British manufacturing race to step up ventilator supplies to help protect the NHS and save lives during the Coronavirus pandemic, as part of the Prime Minister’s call to manufacturers.
This weekend, the first batch of the Penlon ventilator device, which has been rapidly adapted from other existing ventilator designs, will be ready for dispatch, following approval from the MHRA that it meets the necessary safety requirements.
