A BROMSGROVE firm has been aiding the NHS and the general public during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Judd Medical Limited, based on Buntsford Park Road, have been providing medical devices and equipment to the National Health Service for more than 25 years.

This year they have teamed up with an American company to supply reusable antibacterial face coverings to not just health workers but members of the public.

The coverings are washable with an active silver antibacterial protection to help guard the face, nose and mouth against the spread of respiratory droplets and splashes.

Impressively, the masks are machine washable up to 75 times without losing effectiveness, even at high temperatures.

“We would like to recognise all the hard work, effort and dedication shown by Judd Medical’s employees, during the height of the pandemic," said managing director Peter Judd.

"It is with great pride that we have been able to support our local community, plus care homes with the supply of reusable face masks and personal protection equipment, helping to ensure we all stay safe."
