Refrigerated Storage for NHS

October 26, 2021 10:15 am

As we move into the latter stages of 2021 our NHS is busier than ever. Waiting lists due to the pandemic are at an extreme high and the service is stretched. This has seen an upturn in the need for external storage, whether that be for Pharmaceuticals or food for the patience and staff on-site and Seven Refrigeration are proud to be able to support our clients and the NHS during this time.

Sajid Javid, the Health Secretary has been quoted as saying it is “impossible to know” whether the NHS backlog will be cleared within three years, despite the Government pledging nearly £6bn to help solve the issue. As the number of people waiting for appointments reaches 5.6 million this has sparked the Treasury to act.

It’s looking increasingly likely that it will be compulsory for all NHS staff to have the COVID-19 jab which will see approximately 100,000 staff have their first jab which should have an effect on easing the load and keeping important NHS staff at work.

Booster jabs are now also being heavily encouraged for anyone eligible as the operation is being accelerated. There are now over 500 vaccination centres offering booster jabs.

It is true that we are in exceptional times but what is also right is that the NHS is doing a marvellous job under the current circumstance. Seven will continue to support as we enter the winter months where there are questions unanswered in terms of what we can expect this seasonal period.

Seven Refrigeration has been supplying temporary Temperature Controlled Storage solutions to the pharmaceutical industry for many years, for storing vaccines, medications or food. They can be positioned outside or by skating them inside warehouses, space permitting of course.
