A medical fetish company announced that it’s donating its entire stock of disposable scrubs to a hospital to ease the strain on the healthcare industry during the coronavirus pandemic.
MedFet UK, an online store that carries medical equipment for kink and roleplay use, announced the donation on Twitter on Friday.
“When we, a tiny company set up to serve a small section of the kink community, find ourselves being sought out as a last-resort supplier to our National Health Service in a time of crisis, something is seriously wrong,” the company tweeted. “Let’s be under no illusions, this is the result of a decade of chronic underfunding and cuts which has left the NHS barely able to cope under normal circumstances, much less when faced with the onslaught of a global pandemic.”
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.

The company was contacted by a small hospital in Southern England who said they “urgently needed disposable scrubs,” the company’s owner, Justin, said in a Twitter DM. He declined to share his last name.
Because it’s a small company, MedFet didn’t have “more than 25” sets in stock, but sent the entire inventory to the hospital “free of charge.”
“Unexpected is an understatement!” Justin said, referring to the situation in which a kink company supplied a hospital with scrubs, which the company called “scandalous” on Twitter.
In the Twitter thread, MedFet admonished what it called “chronic underfunding” of the United Kingdom’s national healthcare system and praised the medical staff risking their lives to treat coronavirus patients.
“So when it’s all over … and the doctors, nurses and other staff have done an amazing job,” MedFet tweeted. “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.”
It’s certainly unexpected, but much needed. And if you’re going to participate in any roleplay during this pandemic, remember to practice social distancing, wash your hands, and don’t touch your face.
