We are seeing more and more companies unite with and support the NHS as medical staff battle to save as many lives as they can during the COVID-19 national emergency.
And while you may have heard about bike manufacturers and food retailers stepping forward to help the NHS, you probably haven’t heard of fetish companies coming forward to do the same thing.
But that is precisely what one such company has done after donating its entire stock of ‘medical’ clothing to a local hospital.
The company, ‘MedFet’ describes itself as:
‘The only online store 100% dedicated to Medical Fetish, Kink and Roleplay’.
In a series of tweets, a spokesperson for the business said:
“Today, we donated our entire stock of disposable scrubs to an NHS hospital. It was just a few sets, because we don’t carry large stocks, but they were desperate, so we sent them free of charge. We don’t usually do politics on Twitter, but here’s a short thread.
“When you see someone from the government saying the NHS is getting what it needs, that is a LIE. We have been contacted this week by representatives of NHS procurement all over the country, trying to source basic protective equipment and clothing.
“When we, a tiny company set up to serve a small section of the kink community, find ourselves being sought out as a last-resort supplier to our National Health Service in a time of crisis, something is seriously wrong. In fact, it’s scandalous.
“Let’s be under no illusions; this is the result of a decade of chronic underfunding and cuts which has left the NHS barely able to cope under normal circumstances, much less when faced with the onslaught of a global pandemic. It did not, and should not, have to be this way.
“So when it’s all over…and the doctors, nurses and other staff have done an amazing job (as they undoubtedly will despite the circumstances)…let’s not forget, or forgive, the ones who sent the NHS into this battle with inadequate armour and one hand tied behind its back”.
The company’s tweets were ‘liked’ tens of thousands of times by social media users who applauded the company for speaking out on behalf of the NHS staff who are still having to face COVID-19 without adequate personal protective equipment.
But some people suggested that the story was ‘fake news’ claiming that the company was just after some free publicity.
But MedFet was quick to dispel such rumours. A spokesperson for the company said:
“A few have suggested this might be ‘fake news’. It’s not. The scrubs went to a hospital in southern England. We won’t say where exactly because the last thing they need right now is to be drawn into this. Honestly, we wish it wasn’t true, but it is.”
