A volunteer group of NHS doctors, medical students and allies has launched an urgent appeal for personal protective equipment (PPE) to be donated to Scottish hospitals, GP Hubs, Hospices and Care Homes.
MedSupplyDriveUKScotland (MSDUK) are focused on locating and accessing the PPE that industries and businesses across the country may have, that they would be prepared to donate to frontline healthcare staff.
This could include masks, goggles, visors, protective suits and other protective clothing, gloves, overshoes and hand sanitiser.
Donations can be made to the delivery entrance at local healthcare facilities or get in touch #DonatePPEScotland or email firstname.lastname@example.org, who can organise collection if necessary.
Industries that might be able to provide PPE include research labs, construction companies, colleges and universities, the beauty industry, electronics/machinery / engineering manufacturers and TV film production.
