During the COVID-19 pandemic, Automedi has been working hard to find a solution that supports existing health and care supply chains. Not only does Automedi offer a revolutionary manufacturing system, but it also delivers greater financial and environmental benefits.
Intelligent manufacturing solution delivered at the point-of-use.
Automedi's designs & mouldable thermoplastics, can be selected, made and quality controlled by appointed healthcare workers. Our platforms use the highest quality components available with multiple built-in connectivity options, supplied by social enterprises and charitable organisations.
Plastics account for 5 million tonnes of UK waste each
year. The NHS alone emits 23 megatonnes of CO2 and generates 133,000 tonnes of plastic care waste annually with only 5% being recycled.
Automedi is a leading circular plastics economy. Not only eradicating all delivery emissions, but all plastics consumed are recycled into new raw materials.

The effect of mass infections on health and care staff and the subsequent care they provide can be extensive.
The COVID-19 pandemic revealed the
weaknesses of health equipment supplies. This led to high infection and mortality rate amongst health professionals, and the 14-days of self-isolation required use of bank and agency nursing provision. Causing a substantial increase in the cost of care across the service totalling £3.6 billion.
Furthermore, absence salary costs were £1.07 billion between 20th March and 9th August 2020. Of which, 55% were COVID-19 related infections or self-isolation.

Inappropriate or insufficient supplies are a major risk to health and social care staff and the patients they manage.
