PA Consulting is playing a critical role in the Cabinet Office’s Ventilator Challenge programme, having been called on to provide sourcing, logistics, engineering, healthcare and project management expertise for this critical national programme.
The organisation is working with some of the UK’s leading technology and engineering firms alongside smaller specialist manufacturers to rapidly build and dispatch the much-needed ventilators.
On 16th April 2020, the Cabinet Office confirmed that the first newly-adapted ventilator design from the government’s Ventilator Challenge had received regulatory approval and the first batch of devices has already been dispatched to NHS hospitals to support coronavirus patients.
Panos Kakoullis, Chief Executive Officer-Elect, PA Consulting said: “In these extraordinary times, it’s been incredible to see the ingenuity of suppliers around the world, to get ventilators into hospitals fast. PA Consulting is proud to be a part of this life-saving national effort at this critical time and delighted to be working with government and industry on this collaborative mission to help resolve an urgent need for our country.’’
