Updated: PPE portal: opening hours updated and number of items per order
Healthcare providers can order additional personal protective equipment (PPE) through the Government portal to top up their existing supplies for COVID-19 in an emergency.
The PPE portal can be used by:
- small residential social care providers (24 beds or fewer)
- domiciliary social care providers (99 clients or fewer)
If you’re a provider in one of these categories, your invitation to register will be sent to your email account registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) or the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
Update from 22/06/2020: GPs and small social care providers can now place orders multiple times per week within the limits set out in the guidance, instead of a singular order.
Update from 06/08/20: The amount of visors on each order has increased and the opening hours are now 7am-7pm
