Health Minister announces release of personal protection equipment for GPs


Packs were prepared over the weekend, and will be distributed to the 640 GP surgeries in Wales this week.

The minister also authorised personal protection equipment to be released from stockpiles for use by frontline NHS and social services staff, should it become necessary.

Health Minister Vaughan Gething said:

These packs are part of robust infection control measures that we have in place, and I want to reassure people that we are working closely with NHS Wales and social services across the country to implement our planned response.

It is important that frontline medical and social care staff have the equipment they need to keep them safe while they help people with suspected coronavirus.

The face masks, gloves and aprons are part of a stockpile that we have in place as part of our contingency planning should they be needed to support our NHS and social services.
