Warwickmed is practicing sustained efforts to make a greener planet and making patient communication more effective with the help of named theatre caps.
The NHS is a huge organization with over 1.3 million staff. With this type of huge facility we are directly responsible for nearly 4-5 % of the country’s carbon and air pollution with a major effect on the complete healthcare system. Post Covid it’s mandatory for everyone at NHS to wear a surgical mask; thus, the number of blue surgical masks being produced and discarded has skyrocketed. It’s estimated that over 54 million masks are binned every day; that’s more than 1.6 billion every month!
Not only they cannot be recycled, but they also take over 20 years to break down, because they contain cellulose fibers which causes harm to the environment and wildlife. Warwick Med produces and distributes washable surgical theatre caps that can be reused for years, and meet infection control guidelines, thus, no more bin loads of caps going to landfill every day, and a considerable saving to each hospital or NHS trust!
At Warwickmed we are concerned about patient communication and safety thus we came up with named theatre caps, as misidentification and miscommunication causes problems and impact patients’ anxiety and recovery. Without knowing whom to address their concerns or questions to, many patients feel isolated and with no control over their care.
Visit Warwick Med for customized surgical products such as named theatre caps, scrubs, laundry bags, scrub Jackets, etc. They will deliver their products on time and under your budget. For more information, call 0330 102 5810 or visit https://www.warwickmed.co.uk/
Tech Mahindra Ltd., a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering services and solutions, is partnering with many of its global customers to collectively drive the COVID-19 support movement in India. This collaboration aims to extend support to Tech Mahindra Foundation, a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR arm) of Tech Mahindra, to service communities, employees and families across India through various revolutionary work.
With the increasing severity of COVID-19 in the second wave, Tech Mahindra Foundation alongside Tech Mahindra have rolled out several on-ground initiatives within and outside the organisation. These include enabling supply of critical medical equipment, training frontline workers, facilitating vaccination drives for employees and their dependents across the world, distribution of ration kits and other supplies to those in need, converting cafeteria to COVID care facilities, partnering with NGOs to support vulnerable communities, and more. Anticipating the possibility of the third wave, these partnerships are helping further these initiatives that will help in combatting the challenges in future as well.
Rakesh Soni, Chief Executive Officer, Tech Mahindra Foundation, said, “In these difficult times, we must take care and stand by each other to sail through the crisis and emerge stronger. While the Foundation continues with its COVID Relief and Rehabilitation initiatives, we are also collaborating with some of Tech Mahindra’s global customers to facilitate a broader eco-system with diverse expertise to solve some of the recurring COVID challenges. As part of Tech Mahindra’s initiative #ResolveToRISE, this collaboration reiterates our commitment towards supporting the country’s response to the pandemic and help minimize its impact.”
Several of Tech Mahindra’s customers have since extended their support to this cause to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and make a difference on ground. These partnerships have been vital in drawing global support and trust to collectively fight on ground. Alongside Tech Mahindra’s extensive ground work, the Tech Mahindra Foundation has provided relief support to over 23 lakh people across 16 states and counting.
Mallik Rao, Chief Technology & Information Officer, Telefónica Deutschland, says, “The current Corona situation and care in our partner country India is dramatic. Therefore, an initiative by various employees of Telefónica Deutschland launched a fundraising campaign together with the Tech Mahindra Foundation in which everyone can participate to support people in India. In a short time, we have managed to offer different ways of support, e.g. by donating money, buying and shipping needed medical equipment to hospitals and Covid Care Centers all over India or by sponsoring medical trainings for the upskilling of nurses and paramedics.”
The Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading association for project professionals and changemakers, has also stepped up its efforts by collaborating with Tech Mahindra Foundation to provide finance aid and resolve the oxygen crisis in India. These donations will join wider efforts to financially help people in need during their pandemic recovery process.
Sunil Prashara, President & CEO, Project Management Institute, said, “We are concerned about the situation India is facing, and are focused on doing our best to extend all possible help. Our collaboration with Tech Mahindra is an effort to make a difference on the ground, helping the people in need. Our donations are being used to augment ongoing oxygen availability efforts and to feed the underprivileged during these difficult times. PMI will also continue to rally our community of volunteers and stakeholders to lend their project skills and knowledge to tackle this challenge and ongoing recovery.”
Earlier this year, Tech Mahindra extended its support to Mission Oxygen and #OxygenForIndia to set up 50 oxygen plants for charitable and government hospitals across India and deploy 3,000 concentrators and 40,000 cylinders to resolve oxygen crisis in India.
Alexander Rinke, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Celonis, said, “Our hearts and minds are with India and every single patient and their loved ones as this terrible health crisis continues to unfold. We are proud of the efforts by our close partner Tech Mahindra and the amazing work their team is doing to provide help on the ground and get oxygen to those in need. We stand united and are happy that we can do our part to offer support.”
In an effort to ensure employee wellness during this crisis, the company also recently announced the appointment of a Wellness Officer to institutionalize holistic wellness for all employees, partners, and vendors. Tech Mahindra with its philanthropic arm will continue to drive these initiatives to reduce the adversities caused since the pandemic broke out.
Prime Healthcare hospitals across the United States have made incredible progress in providing vaccinations to the communities they serve, administering doses of hope to more than 200,000. Prime Healthcare is one of the nation’s largest health systems with 46 hospitals in 14 states.

Prime hospitals have partnered with States and Counties in successful vaccination programs, as well as individual outreach programs, awareness campaigns and grassroots vaccine drives with the engagement of community stakeholders, local governments, health clinics and affiliated physician offices.
Prime’s vaccination campaigns also serve the system’s commitment to advance health equity. At St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, California, located in a major COVID-19 surge epicenter in one of the most vulnerable and underserved areas of Southern California, the hospital, in a historic partnership with the City, County, State and community outreach groups, was able to vaccinate thousands of South Los Angeles residents and helped the city of Lynwood reach a 50 percent vaccination rate by late May, much higher than surrounding communities.
“A critical collaboration between St. Francis Medical Center, the City of Lynwood, the County of Los Angeles, SELA Collaborative, the Lynwood Unified School District, and with Speaker Anthony Rendon’s office, provided vaccines to over 1,500 people who either live or work in the City of Lynwood. Our collaborative efforts have the potential to vaccinate another 2,000 people in desperate need of this life-saving vaccine,” said Lynwood Mayor Marisela Santana. “This moment in our history has not been an easy one, yet St. Francis Medical Center has worked hard to keep its doors open to continue serving residents of all of the communities who depend on them.”
