When the emergency COVID-19 legislation passed by the UK Government, JPA immediately placed all external works and client deliveries on hold, storing all client goods for free in our warehousing until deliveries can be re-instated. Safeguarding the health and well-being of our staff, customers, families and the NHS are paramount.
However, JPA remain open. Our team are determined to assist the NHS at this critical juncture as best we can, and have put our logistics and manpower at the disposal of the NHS, helping to move critical equipment and supplied between hospitals and also to supply much needed emergency equipment. We are also donating furniture as and where we can.
Our delivery teams have volunteered to take part in this invaluable work, and we have never been prouder of our JPA Family than we are today. In 2019, we lost our beloved Chairman to illness, and we all recognise that he would have been the first to volunteer and try and make a difference in these difficult times – this was the type of company he wanted to build.
Today alone our teams have been making deliveries to UCLH, Lister Hospital (Stevenage), Barnet Hospital and West Herts (Hemel Hempstead) Hospital. If you see our vehicles and our teams operating during the lockdown period, this is for completion of essential works and fulfilment of NHS requirements, undertaken by our hard-working staff and under strictly controlled conditions.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and do everything in our power to contribute to the efforts to reduce the impact of COVID-19. We appreciate your continued support and would like to assure you of our commitment to the NHS, our community, our staff and our customers.
