PPE: Health and Social Care

Thank you for contacting me about the supply of personal protective equipment to people working in health and social care.

Ensuring frontline staff are properly protected is of paramount importance to myself and to my colleagues on all sides of Parliament.  The army has been delivering supplies of the equipment.  I have raised this directly with the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and been closely involved locally.  However, I will continue to scrutinise steps being taken to ensure that all health and social care staff, whether they work in the NHS or other care facilities, are adequately protected and able to carry out their vital roles safely. 

If you know of a particular problem with PPE supplies in North Shropshire, please get in touch and I will look into it urgently.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
