Will I have access to PPE?

The supply and availability of PPE is a key concern for health and social care staff as we respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is essential that all staff are aware of what PPE is available to them and who to contact locally if they need to raise any concerns or issues relating to PPE.

Revised PPE guidance is now available which outlines what PPE frontline health and social care workers should be wearing in different settings and scenarios, and can be found here;

If employees have any questions or concerns relating to the accessibility of appropriate PPE these should be raised locally via normal processes in the first instance.

Staff who are employed by NES but working in clinical placements are advised to raise their concerns or questions with their placement Board.
