At the NEC in Birmingham, Deanestor worked with Interserve for University Hospitals Birmingham and supplied specialist clinical equipment including workbenches and storage space.

William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor, said, “We were very pleased to be part of the fantastic work that has been underway across the UK to support our NHS.

“A huge thank you to our logistics, despatch and fit-out teams for making these projects happen in just a few days and in some cases working over weekends.

Deanestor also contributed to the early completion of 150 much-needed hospital beds at the Royal Liverpool Hospital project .
