Work on rebalancing the intensive care unit (ICU) consumables stockpile is focussed on preserving and realising the value of stock under management through usage, sales and appropriate donations. Product currently identified as inappropriate for sale or donation is scheduled to be disposed of through recycling and energy recovery.

This currently represents one million items or 0.11% of the total number of products held in the ICU consumables COVID-19 stockpile.
