New guidance on PPE

NHS England has today updated their guidance on PPE which now includes eye protection for all face to face consultations in primary care:

Local delivery of PPE this week

We have arranged for a pack of PPE (masks, aprons, hand sanitiser) to be supplied for each GP Practice and each GP Federation across South West London. This pack is based on previous guidance but from next week orders will be aligned to the new guidance. Packs will be delivered from Friday 3 April to your practice. We will deliver these to you and your local primary care team will manage delivery arrangements.

New process for ordering PPE

From the week beginning 6 April we are anticipating there will be a new national process for ordering of PPE and we will share this with you as soon as possible.
