Free PPE scheme extended until June

January 12, 2021

NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) confirmed yesterday (11th January 2021), that the Government has decided to extend the provision of supplies of free COVID-19 personal protective equipment (PPE) beyond the end of March 2021.

The Department of Health and Social Care’s (DHSC) PPE portal can continue to be used by community pharmacies to obtain all the COVID-19 PPE they need and contractors should ensure they have registered for this.

Free PPE will now be available to the end of June 2021. In addition, the scheme will be reviewed again in April to determine the provision of PPE beyond the end of June.

Further information and guidance is available via the PSNC website or via the DHSC PPE portal page.
