I think you really must protect yourself and not rely on hospital management at this You may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one shirt. PPE not arriving quick enough so get your own to be safe. Our practise made PPE gowns from old clinical curtains. A local group Plymouth scrubbers also supplied us with scrubs.we also had face masks donated and face visors made by a local person. This is a travesty, but American can do is still around with so many of us. So they are getting it done. Its very unfortunate that government cannot provide the required protection for the medical professionals but if you are able to buy it then it is wise to do so.
There was a Trust in my You may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one shirt telling their staff if they buy their own they would not be insured. It’s a disgrace the government didn’t adequately prepare. I bought my own PPE and I am a support worker so I am sure doctors can afford it although they and me shouldn’t have to. Doctors having to buy their own PPE? Disgraceful. This is a rich country. Doctors, nurses, etc who have saved lives should be given their protective equipment free.
