Tell us why you cannot repair COVID-19 hospital equipment

The Restart Project is a UK-based charity that campaigns for the Right to Repair.

We know some hospital equipment that could be used by medical professionals in the COVID emergency is broken and repair is difficult. We’d like to understand this situation better, so we can make the case for the release of repair manuals and designs of spare parts where supply chains have broken down or are delayed.

We don’t want to make false assumptions.

In collaboration with the US PIRG’s Right to repair campaign, we’re asking anyone with information on the topic to fill this form. Please share with anyone who might have access to useful information on this.

We plan to openly release results from the form as aggregate findings about type of equipment and regional trends. To protect the identity of those who submit, we will not reference to your specific case, unless you give us consent below.

If you would like super secure end-to-end communication, please reach out to us on Signal app on +447852570279.
