As many will be aware IHEEM and The Royal Academy of Engineering have been doing what they can to help in the COVID response. Earlier this week a conversation was had with the PPE leads at NHS England, they are thinking about PPE manufacture and reuse and are hoping to embed some technical expertise in the team through secondments of 1-2 months. We have been tasked with identifying a handful of volunteers for secondment opportunities that cover the following areas;
- Technical fabrics
- Filtration
- Plastics
- Medical products
- Product standards testing
Unfortunately, they are operating on a short timescale so we are asking you to email your interest to  and state why you are suited to any of the above areas by Monday 27th April 12noon.
