We are a group of doctors, most of whom are working frontline in the NHS in the fight against COVID-19. We have established this fundraise to provide much needed equipment and supplies to our frontline colleagues so that they have the necessary protection and tools to treat their patients.
Although the NHS is doing its best to order supplies, there are significant shortages at a local level. With a UK and International supply chain already in place, we have been sourcing and delivering PPE, masks, visors and sanitiser directly to staff since the last week of March. We have established a logistics network to supply medics in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool and we are delivering the equipment directly into the hands of the staff who need it. We need your support to keep the PPE coming as it is likely the situation will get worse in the UK before it gets better. Please give generously.

Dr Dhinsa's Story
I am a Trauma and Orthopaedic consultant in the NHS and have seen colleagues develop symptoms requiring isolation to patients needing intensive support for COVID-19. I have seen first-hand the evolving daily changes in the infrastructure and work of the hospital. Any support to help the healthcare system dealing with this crisis is greatly appreciated, as many hospitals are currently struggling to deal with the demand for equipment and maintain a workforce to cope with increasing workload. It has been amazing to see how local communities have come together to help at the hospital with equipment and providing food. Please give generous to help support the frontline staff, and adhere to advice to stay at home if possible and keep safe.

Dr Entikabi's Story
I am a GP in the NHS and see the heroic efforts all my frontline colleagues are making to help patients in the COVID-19 crisis. They need our support to ensure they have what they need to keep going. The healthcare system is under immense strain and we need to band together now more than ever and support the frontline staff looking after us. Please give generously, stay safely indoors and any other suggestions or support most welcome.

Dr Kumar's Story
As you may already know, I used to work in the NHS as a doctor before switching to investing ~9 years ago. Many of my family, friends and former colleagues are working on the frontlines in the NHS right now and some are struggling for food and equipment (PPE, hand sanitiser etc.). We have all seen the pictures from Italy and know that COVID-19 will get worse before it gets better. Many people I have spoken with share my frustration around the current situation and want to make a difference.
I am going to help by raising money, securing food and supplies and delivering them to where they are most needed. If you can help me with this effort, please donate your time and money generously for the heroes working tirelessly for us on the frontlines.
