Coronavirus: Call for businesses to help make NHS ventilators

31 March 2020


The UK government is looking for businesses to support in the production and supply of ventilators and ventilator components 

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is looking for businesses who can support the supply of ventilators and ventilator components across the UK as part of their response to COVID-19.

As well as manufacturers they are looking for businesses with the following skills:

  • design/specification
  • rapid prototyping
  • contract/product assembly
  • certification/regulation/testing
  • logistics
  • medical training

To offer support with existing ventilator stock you can complete this online form.

BEIS has received a large number of offers so regret that they can't respond to each one. BEIS will be matching requirements and will reach out to companies individually.

If your business can offer support with initiatives other than the production and supply of ventilators, see Coronavirus: Offer support from your business.
