There is unprecedented, global demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Government, NHS Supply Chain, and the National Health Service are working hard with industry to secure additional supplies and manufacture further PPE. For acute, mental health, community, integrated care and ambulance trusts there is a PPE dedicated supply channel delivering all core PPE products used for managing and treating patients with COVID-19 such as eye protection, aprons, gloves, gowns, masks and hand sanitiser. Pallet deliveries are being made on a regular basis.
