We support call for protecting healthcare staff from COVID-19 variants

We've co-signed a letter to the Prime Minister which calls for increased protection for health and care workers from new COVID-19 variants.

The letter is supported by organisations representing doctors, nurses, paramedics and other health professions, and makes a number of recommendations, including on ventilation and respiratory protection, and calls for further research and updated guidance.

RPS President Sandra Gidley said:

“Pharmacists and pharmacy teams are on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic and have shown enormous dedication to supporting patient care under the most challenging circumstances.

“As our understanding of COVID-19 variants evolves, it’s vital that guidance and support keeps pace so that all health and care workers receive the protection they need.”

Protecting pharmacy teams, including access to PPE, has been a key focus for RPS throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more on our hub page.
