GM access to PPE

GM access to PPE

May 6, 2020

GMLPC and Bolton LPC have currently been working to access PPE for contractors locally in Greater Manchester. We would advise contractors to take the following steps to access PPE:

  1. Please contact your wholesaler in the first instance.
  2. If you cannot get PPE from your wholesaler, please complete the following form.
  3. As a final resort, an urgent request can be made via the national NSDR helpline by telephoning 0800 915 9964.

Please note there is limited access to PPE locally and further instructions on how this can be accessed will be communicated with you if stock is available.
