To all our industry partners:

While the NHS is busy fighting against the current pandemic all NHS workers are required at the frontline and as such a decision to pause all non Covid related research has been taken

Should  you believe that your product can be useful in the current Covid-19 pandemic (e.g. ventilators and other vital equipment) we would like to hear from you.

Otherwise we will contact you as soon as the current situation has been resolved.
