PPE rollout must extend to all social care workers

Responding to the Health Secretary, Liberal Democrat Health spokesperson Munira Wilson, said: “Frontline workers are putting their lives on the line every single day to protect us. In turn, we have a moral obligation to do all we can to protect them. While unacceptably late, it is welcome news that the Government has finally come forward with a plan to distribute PPE.

“As an absolute priority, the Government must ensure an urgent rollout of PPE and testing not just to all NHS staff but also all social care workers in order to protect both themselves and the most vulnerable. This rollout out must also be accompanied by the clear, unequivocal guidance which keeps all our frontline staff safe.”
