Please ensure that you have read the full guidance, available  under downloads/links section on the right hand side of this page before placing your order,  The guidance  includes the PPE Local Interim GuidancePPE quick reference guide when working with adults and PPE quick reference guide when working with children documents and the PPE FAQ's - to help you determine what level of PPE is required to undertake a range of tasks so that you know exactly what you need.

You can  then use the online PPE order system to request your supply.
