DHSC publishes new PPE plan to ensure equipment is delivered to those on the front line responding to COVID-19


The goal of this new plan from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is 'that everyone should get the personal protective equipment (PPE) they need'. The plan incorporates three strands:

  • guidance on who needs PPE and when
  • distribution: making sure those who need PPE can get it and at the right time
  • future supply: taking action to secure enough PPE to see us through the crisis.

Matt Hancock, Health and Social Care Secretary, describes the plan in the daily press briefing.
