Wanted : Gowns For NHS Staff

As you may be aware, there is a national shortage of gowns for NHS staff. This shortage is also affecting us locally and as a result, Devon is in desperate need of gowns. We are therefore putting out a plea for:

  • boiler suits
  • lab coats
  • painting suits
  • chemical suits
  • disposable (or washable) overall with full length sleeves.

Full information on the kinds of items which would be acceptable is available here.

If you have stocks of anything which you think may be suitable, and which you are willing to spare, please email the CCG or ring 01803 314600.
