Pharmacists must have access to PPE Portal

RPS England comments on the news that GPs and small care homes can now register on the ‘PPE Portal’, a new online portal to help primary and social care providers order critical PPE.

RPS England Chair Claire Anderson said:

“It’s really disappointing to see pharmacy being left behind in this phase of the roll-out.

“Pharmacies are one of the last places keeping their doors open to the public without an appointment and yet seemingly an afterthought when it comes to sourcing PPE for staff.

“We’ve raised this repeatedly with the Government and have called for pharmacy to urgently being included in the PPE Portal.

“People working on the frontline of COVID-19 should get the same support wherever they may be, including across the whole of primary care.”
