An online personal protective equipment (PPE) Portal is under development to enable primary, social, and community care providers to request critical PPE. The PPE portal is not delayed and has been tested with the sector and is now being scaled up nationally over the coming weeks.

All general practitioners and small social care providers in Birmingham and West Midlands have now been invited to register and order with the PPE Portal.
