As it stands, the UK are at the back of the queue for getting supplies imported from overseas. Anyone who comes into close contact with patients who may or do have coronavirus should wear some form of protection. This includes staff working in care homes, prisons and the community, as well as in GP surgeries or hospitals.
In order to address this issue, we are now a procurement channel in certified quality standard PPE for care homes and local government.
Project Little Boat
We are working directly with manufacturers and with Project Little Boat to make certified quality standard PPE available to local government. The value proposition of Project Little Boat is to firstly offer a turnkey solution for Government to bring PPE to the UK from China, at scale, now, to save lives. And secondly, to help create an independent UK by developing our own PPE solutions. Not only is shortage a challenge, but the increased consumption of PPE creates a recycling issue as well. Project Little Boat has addressed this by to setting up a national network for recycling PPE.
