Your NHS needs you - urgent appeal for PPE
By Rob Freeman | 17th April 2020
Gloucestershire County Council has offered an urgent appeal for donations of personal protective equipment to help frontline NHS and social care workers in the fight against COVID-19.
The appeal from the council reads:
"Can you help NHS and social care colleagues in the county by offering up your stocks of PPE?
"The items are urgently needed to support NHS and social care staff delivering care to some of the most vulnerable in our county.
"In this time of great need, please consider how you might be able to help."
The urgently required items are:
- Waterproof gowns with long sleeve
- Nitrile (rubber) gloves
- Disposable gloves
- Disposable plastic aprons
- Face masks (fluid repellent)
- Goggle or full face masks (plastic)
- Full cover disposable suits
One firm which has donated is Gloucester-based men's grooming business Hawkins & Brimble, who delivered 20,000 face masks to Gloucestershire NHS Trust.
Chief executive Stephen Shortt said: "Happy we can help the fight against coronavirus."
If you can help, please provide details of which items you have, including quantities and how quickly they could be made available to Covid19transporthub@glosfire.gov.uk.
