Dear Care Provider
In the most recent ADASS/LGA Hub Update it has been confirmed that there will be an extension to the current invitation to register with the PPE Portal:
PPE Portal Phase 2
DHSC has so far invited residential care homes with 24 or fewer beds and domiciliary care providers with 99 or fewer client to use the PPE Portal. It is now planning to invite larger social care providers to use the portal and order free PPE.
The current order limits offered on the PPE Portal will currently only meet a small proportion of PPE needs, during this onboarding process. For the time being, they request that providers continue to use existing supply routes as their main source of PPE, turning to the portal for an emergency top-up.
Providers will receive an email invitation to register with the PPE Portal between Monday 03 August and Friday 07 August 2020.
