Free PPE scheme extended until March 2022

April 9, 2021

NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) confirmed yesterday (8th April 2021) that the Government has decided to extend the provision of supplies of free COVID-19 personal protective equipment (PPE) to health and care providers, including community pharmacies. Following the previous announcement of free PPE provision until the end of June 2021, the scheme will now be extended to the end of March 2022.

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, free of charge, until the end of March 2022.

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