Care England has welcomed the Government’s decision to extend free PPE to care providers, for COVID, until the end of March 2022. View the factsheet.
According to the representative of independent care providers, the Government has been told by clinical experts that usage will remain high throughout the next financial year.
As the Government has made clear, the vaccine is not a silver bullet and the care sector must remain astute by maintaining high levels of infection prevention and control. PPE plays a huge role in this.
Centralised supplies introduces sustainability and resilience in relation to PPE supply, Care England says.
