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.

In order to protect the health and wellbeing of care workers, as well as their patients and clients, the continued provision will make sure frontline workers can access rigorously tested and high-quality PPE.

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.

Find out more about the PPE Portal and provision on the PPE page of the Sutton Care Hub.
