Promoting partnership working in the NHS

SPF key messages on PPE

On 21 April, the SPF held a workshop on personal protective equipment (PPE). The workshop enabled partners to meet with Susan Hopkins, PHE, Emily Lawson, NHSE/I and Una Bennett, DHSC.

The meeting helped partners get answers to key questions on the supply of PPE and the level of PPE that should be used in specific clinical procedures. These conversations will continue, with NHS Employers and national trade unions being the conduit for feeding up questions on PPE from their members and feeding back answers.

Following the meeting, key messages on PPE were agreed.
