With the UK coronavirus outbreak building to its peak and a huge new emergency hospital being lashed together in east London to cope with the expected torrent of cases, the focus is turning to scavenging medical supplies from any source.
Letters have been sent to more than 65,000 retired doctors and nurses in England and Wales asking them to return to the NHS to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak.
Thousands have already answered the call, but they need uniforms and personal protective equipment (PPE).
Protective goggles have been donated from schools’ science departments, tattoo studios and nail bars have offered gloves and masks, and authentic surgical scrubs has come in from a most unlikely source.
Hardcore medical fetishists demand a more authentic experience than an Ann Summers "sexy nurse" outfit. Their attention to detail makes an episode of Holby City look like a childhood game of doctors and nurses.
So MedFet, an online store that describes itself as being “100% dedicated to medical fetish, kink and roleplay”, keeps a stock of authentic medical kit just for them.
Except now it’s not just for them any more. The store has handed its stock of surgical-grade scrubs to the fight against Covid-19.
The company tweeted: “Today we donated our entire stock of disposable scrubs to an NHS hospital. It was just a few sets, because we don't carry large stocks, but they were desperate, so we sent them free of charge.”

MedFet added that they were responding to enquiries from NHS medics who had been trying to source their own PPE because health service cuts had left them woefully under-equipped to face the pandemic.
MedFet said: “When you see someone from the government saying the NHS is getting what it needs, that is a lie.

“We have been contacted this week by representatives of NHS procurement all over the country, trying to source basic protective equipment and clothing.”
They added that they laid the blame for this shortfall squarely at the feet of the current government: “So when it's all over…" they said, "and the doctors, nurses and other staff have done an amazing job (as they undoubtedly will despite the circumstances)…let's not forget, or forgive, the ones who sent the NHS into this battle with inadequate armour and one hand tied behind its back.”
