COVID-19 Plymouth PPE Order Request

As part of the Government's PPE Strategy which aims to facilitate the 'effective supply and distribution of PPE to those on the frontline responding to COVID-19', Plymouth City Council has agreed to work with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to offer FREE PPE for collection from Windsor House.

If you are a CQC Registered care provider you should be getting your free PPE via the government's PPE Portal  including FFP3 masks and surgical gowns. You can also use the form below  for FFP3 masks and non-surgical gowns only. FFP3 masks will only be issued for people who have been fit tested to that mask type. If you need assistance with fit testing please contact PPERequests@plymouth.gov.uk in the first instance.

Who is eligible for the free PPE offer?

  • Local authorities (including children and adult social care workers)
  • Personal assistants (commissioned by LAs, CCGs, and funded through personal health budgets)
  • Other adult social care services, that are not be supplied via the PPE Portal (e.g. shared lives and day care services)
  • Mental health community care
  • Domestic violence refuges
  • Rough sleeping services

You must:

  • Have a clinical need for the PPE
  • Use PPE in line with clinical guidance
  • Be ineligible for the DHSC PPE Portal

Before you start

You can request a month's supply of PPE for your front line service (i.e. where your staff are interacting with service users or the public).

We can offer one collection per provider each month until (and including March 2022).

Please request what your need for a whole month. The number of items we are able to dispatch will depend on the available stock, but we will endeavour to adjust the amounts of PPE that we receive from the DHSC month on month so that we can meet your full requirement when you next request PPE.
