OneWelbeck consultant Sanjay Purkayastha: a driving force behind PPE

Mr Sanjay Purkayastha, Consultant General Surgeon at OneWelbeck Digestive Surgery, has been exceptionally busy during the COVID-19 pandemic. He has teamed up with GP Anu Patel (the pair met over 20 years ago as medical students in London), and collectively they have spent months campaigning for organisations large and small to donate face shields, overalls, masks and gowns for local NHS trusts. Last month they had a huge breakthrough where a million masks were pledged to go to care homes across London.
