Holding answer received on 23 March 2020

We are aware of the interruption to the supply chain of personal protective equipment, in particular face masks for the safe delivery of dental care.

We have been working with the four main dental wholesalers. Face masks have been released from the pandemic flu stock to relieve some of the current pressure and stock is available.
