Covid-19 PPE and other supplies – latest update

  • Latest news

Supplies of practice equipment, particularly PPE remains of great concern due to levels of availability being mismatched to need.

Whilst there are low levels of stock with some suppliers, many have no stock of the most needed items and are awaiting deliveries. The Londonwide LMCs’ Buying Group works closely with our trusted supplier MidMeds for many practice consumables including PPE. They have availability of a number of key items such as hand sanitiser, face masks and gloves and have orders coming in the next few weeks for other key lines such as FFP2 masks, non-contact thermometers and pulse oximeters.

MidMeds advise us that stock for high demand items is moving quickly, so it is best to place orders in anticipation of delivery as to ensure that you have sufficient PPE protection for your staff. Delaying an order is likely to mean that when supplies arrive they will already have been pre-ordered by other practices.
