PPE Dedicated Supply Channel

NHS Trusts

This channel is for Acute, Mental Health, Community, Integrated Care and Ambulance trusts. This new supply channel has taken over the current ‘push’ of core PPE stock to many organisations. To help position PPE stocks with trusts which are currently treating the greatest number of COVID-19 patients, we have also modified our ‘push’ distribution model to provide greater quantities to those regions most affected.

The Daily Delivery Manifest (available as a download) – for ‘push’ of core PPE stock. These manifests are published on this page so that you can see what core PPE products will be delivered to your trust today / tomorrow, by product description and by volume.

Based on customer feedback, there are now fixed delivery days by organisation type so you know on which days you can expect a delivery. These are shown on the table below.
