Unfortunately current hospital supplies are not sufficient and while we are reassured the government is doing everything it can, healthcare workers on the frontline are risking themselves daily without adequate protection to care for sick patients. Healthcare workers on the frontline without PPE is the equivalent of going to war without armour and protection.
I have decided to set up this fundraising page so that we can help those who are making huge sacrifices daily.
All I and similar pages ask is for your kind financial contribution, no matter how small, to go towards funding more PPE. To deal with this unprecedented global pandemic – the time to act is NOW to reduce harm to patients and staff on the frontline. PPE stops us spreading the virus to other patients, protecting non-COVID patients as well as NHS staff.
It's not just doctors and nurses - frontline staff include paramedics, porters, cleaning staff, healthcare assistants, catering staff providing meals for patients, physiotherapists and an army of NHS volunteers! They all need protection!
