Personal Protective Equipment
Local businesses have got together to set up and manage a PPE supply service for East Kent, backed by myself and the Dover and East Kent Chamber of Commerce.
The service will receive requests from those who need the equipment, seeking to match them with suppliers, as well as arrange transport and delivery where needed.
The contact point for the service is firstname.lastname@example.org and people should use a single subject line depending on which element of the supply chain they are corresponding from.
For organisations which need PPE use only ‘PPE Requirement’ in the subject line. They should be sent in the late afternoon, preferably after 5pm so that they can be matched overnight with potential suppliers.
For organisations which have PPE availability or which can manufacture to the required specs use only ‘PPE Supplier’ in the subject line. They can be sent to email@example.com at any time, but will only matched with demand side organisations overnight on the day received.
For Transport/Distribution organisations use only ‘PPE Transport’ in the subject line. These messages can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org between 7am and 11am and should indicate available tip and pick slots for the next 24/48 hours. Any slot requirements will be notified daily between 7 and 9am.
For volunteers who wish to support the service use only ‘PPE Volunteer’ in the subject line when emailing email@example.com
This guidance is for everyone. It advises on social distancing measures we should all be taking to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). It is intended for use in situations where people are living at home, with or without additional support from friends, family and carers.
This important Government guide provides the latest Government advice about social distancing, with particular information for those who are at increased risk of severe illness – for example people over 70 years of age, those who are pregnant and those with certain underlying health conditions.
