A number of NHS nurses asked for Sudocrem® to soothe soreness to their faces caused by wearing surgical masks all day to treat patients – so Teva picked up the challenge.
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve received a number of emails and calls from nurses and other frontline NHS staff requesting individual pots of Sudocrem® to help soothe soreness to the face caused by the wearing of face masks and other personal protective equipment. We realised that under the current difficult conditions, front line nurses and doctors need all the help they can get.
So as a direct result of being alerted to the need, we’re pleased to say that this week we’ve donated a consignment of more than 100,000 pots of Sudocrem® to the NHS. The donation will be distributed to primary care trusts up and down the UK in the coming days and weeks, and it’s a small way to say ‘thank you’ to the NHS staff keeping the country safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our NHS heroes are doing an incredible job keeping the nation safe during this challenging time,” said Kim Innes, General Manager of Teva UK & Ireland. “In addition to making sure we keep medicines moving for patients, we wanted to do something to show our appreciation and gratitude to NHS staff up and down the UK. We hope this small gesture will help to make the lives of those on the frontlines just that little bit easier.”
