Dear Care Provider,
The Central Government PPE portal can now be used by all adult social care homes and domiciliary care providers to order PPE for COVID-19 requirements. This is a change from previously when this was only an emergency top-up system.
The following items are available via the portal: aprons, gloves, Type IIR masks, hand hygiene and visors. There are weekly order limits, but these are under review and may be increasing over the coming weeks.
Providers can register on the portal using their CQC registered address via this link: http://nhs-ppe.co.uk/
