Patients at Great Ormond Street children’s hospital can expect faster treatment thanks to a major donation by Mail Force – one which comes with a royal seal of approval.

Mail Force has donated £300,000 of new Covid-19 testing equipment to Britain’s best-known children’s hospital, which will provide rapid diagnosis for children, families and medical staff, thus ensuring quicker access to medical care.

Matthew Shaw, chief executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital Foundation Trust, expressed his heartfelt gratitude: “On behalf of all our staff, patients and their families, I would like to say a massive thank you to Mail Force for this.

“It is crucial that all those children who require GOSH’s specialist care feel confident about coming into hospital.

“We have worked really hard to make the hospital a safe space for them and their families and the equipment generously funded by Mail Force will make a real difference in helping us keep it that way.

“Not only does it enable us to rapidly test patients before and during their stay with us, but it also helps us to keep staff protected so they can deliver the vital care these children need.”

This sentiment was echoed by the Duchess of Cornwall with this simple message: “Huge congratulations to a brilliant cause.”

Mail Force has now raised more than £11 million to help combat Covid-19.
