Urgent Public Appeal

Cllr Danny Thorpe appealing for donations of PPE
Greenwich Council leader Danny Thorpe has made an urgent public appeal for personal protection equipment for our frontline workers. Can you help? 

"Our PPE equipment for social care staff has not arrived for days. We have flagged up across London and through our command structures and not heard anything.

The situation is now extremely serious. We have at least 1 patient in the QE who could be discharged into a home if the staff had the kit they need to keep safe. They don’t, so a bed is blocked.

We have been told for days it is coming and it doesn’t arrive.
We urgently need the following:

  1. FFP3 Face Masks
  2. Aprons
  3. Gloves (Long sleeve and short if possible)
  4. Protective eye goggles

The type of masks we are after are often used in construction, garages, nail bars and spray painting.

I need this to be shared across your networks please. 
Many thanks
