Market Harborough consultancy firm secures funding to support the NHS

GPT Consult, a Leicestershire based consulting engineering company which works with the NHS, has secured funding from HSBC UK to support the business following increased demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company, which is headquartered in Market Harborough, provides consultancy services to 18 NHS Trusts, including Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital, to ensure that all critical ventilation systems in theatres and infection units are safe, as well as supporting the conversion of operating theatres to critical care units.

To help cope with the increased demand the facility from HSBC UK has enabled GPT Consult to employ an additional five specialists engineers, as well as increasing the numbers of contractors they work with to ensure the Trusts’ receive the support they need promptly.

Graham Taylor, Partner at GPT Consult LLP, said: “Over the last two months, we’ve been providing additional levels of support to the NHS Trusts we work with, as well as our private healthcare clients, to help ensure their facilities are able to manage the increased demand due to the pandemic. We have been very grateful to HSBC UK for making the funding available to us which has enabled us to respond quickly.”

Zoe Hyett, HSBC UK Direct Business Specialist, said: “We’re committed to supporting our customers during this period of uncertainty. It’s important we’re able to tailor the support required to meet the customer’s needs and we were delighted to be able to provide the facility to GPT Consult to enable them to seek the resources they needed to keep up with the increased service requirements from customers.”
