Grŵp Llandrillo Menai is supporting the NHS and frontline key workers in their response to Covid-19.
Staff at Coleg Llandrillo, Coleg Menai and Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor are supporting a range of initiatives amongst our local communities. An online training package developed by college Health and Social Care tutors is being used to induct thirty new BCUHB members of staff who will begin working in various healthcare settings. Grŵp Llandrillo Menai has also shared this resource with other colleges across Wales.
Our college sites are being used to deliver induction training for North Wales Police and to host blood bank donation services across North West Wales.
Using our industry-standard state-of-the-art technology, Engineering staff are constructing NHS approved visor parts.
After receiving guidance and instruction, the Grŵp's six state-of-the-art 3D printers are producing headbands for the masks which are then sent to a hub to be assembled into much needed equipment. A clear plastic film is then added at this stage to provide protection when treating patients.
To ensure the health of the region, a range of personal and protective equipment (PPE) has been sourced and donated from our Hospitality and Catering, Sports, Science, Engineering, Automotive and Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy workshops.
Extensive food supplies from our Catering, Hospitality Management departments and student canteens have also been given to local food banks to support families.
Dafydd Evans, Chief Executive Officer of Grŵp Llandrillo Menai said:
Grŵp Llandrillo Menai will continue to find ways we can support our local communities. Whether it is to provide training to frontline staff, use of our facilities, or to utilise our technology and expertise we will endeavour to continue to support frontline Public Services.
