To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many offers of help have been received via www.gov.uk/coronavirus-support-from-business; what the maximum time is within which offers are acknowledged; how many substantive responses have been provided; and if he will make a statement.
Over 26,000 offers of help have been received by the ‘central support from business’ triage point and survey. All offers are automatically acknowledged by email upon receipt and are followed up with a telephone call.
To date, the Crown Commercial Service has made phone contact with most suppliers (around 99.5%) that have made non-medical offers of support. They have also published a catalogue of offers which is designed to make it as easy as possible for offers of non-medical goods and services to be taken up across the public sector. Currently, 9,000 offers are published on the catalogue.
The catalogue of offers is available at the following link:
