Petition Details

The government must join the Joint European Procurement Initiative for purchasing PPE vital for the safety of frontline staff in the battle against Covid-19. This order covers masks type 2 and 3, gloves, goggles, face-shields, surgical masks and overalls in the first round. Reverse the decision.

Additional Information

The lessons from Italy and elsewhere is that protection of healthcare staff is crucial in the fight against Covid-19.

It is a moral duty to protect staff
Asymptomatic workers can spread the virus.
Infected workers will have to take time off.

Staff in all covid-19 positive areas must have full PPE. No exceptions: emergency department, theatre, radiology, wards and ICU.

If we do not join the UK will be at the back of the cue for orders of PPE coming into Europe costing many lives
