Marks & Spencer turns pyjamas into NHS scrubs to help in coronavirus fight

M&S is supplying T-shirts to NHS Nightingale London to help the fight against coronavirus

Marks & Spencer is donating pyjamas to be used as scrubs by the NHS as part of several initiatives to support the health serviced during the coronavirus outbreak.

Marks & Spencer will give approximately 4,000 pyjamas to NHS Derbyshire, which operates close to the retailer’s Castle Donington distribution centre.

The retailer is also sourcing, packing and delivering clothing care packs to the new NHS Nightingale London hospital “to help provide comfort and dignity for discharged patients” along with specially branded ‘We are the NHS’ T-shirts, which will be part of the uniform pack for staff.

M&S’ food division will also start operating a twice-weekly free delivery service for staff at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, close to its head office, and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
