Free PPE extended until June 2021
As the largest vaccination programme in the UK’s history continues, the Government has extended the provision of free personal protective equipment (PPE) for COVID-19 needs to social care providers until the end of June 2021.
The scheme has been extended to better support this critical stage for vaccination and mass testing programmes.
CQC registered providers can continue to access free PPE through the PPE portal. Non CQC-registered providers can access free PPE through their Local Resilience Forum (LRF) or local authority where LRFs are no longer distributing.
