I visited Rugby National Distribution centre, run by NHS Supply Chain, on 25 March 2020. Rugby was finalised as the location for the visit, as it was better placed than the Runcorn Regional NHS Distribution Centre to accommodate visitors given the significant volumes of personal protective equipment items products being ordered by the National Health Service at that time.
