Donations of PPE and other supplies

The groundswell of public support - both for the NHS and staff working across our health and social care system responding to the COVID-19 pandemic - has been phenomenal.

There is no doubt that communities, voluntary groups, businesses and individuals want to do their bit to try to help.

Many businesses are looking at how they can use their existing expertise to produce supplies of things they are hearing are much-needed in the system – including the likes of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and scrubs. Community groups and others have been hugely innovative in looking at how they can use their skills to help this effort too.

Clearly, any supplies accepted into use across the health and social care system, and for wider key workers, must meet certain quality and safety standards. With so many offers coming forward, it is important to prioritise those offers first that will contribute to existing stocks the most.

Until now, NHSGGC has had a local arrangement to consider all offers of support for PPE. The Scottish Government has now set up a team to respond to these offers. A single point of contact has been created and we have been asked to direct any business, community or voluntary organisation now wishing to make donations of PPE, scrubs, uniforms and other supplies to E: This email address is being protected from spambots.
