If you are unable to secure PPE from your usual provider and you work within any of the following categories then you may be able to order through the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) Free PPE Portal (once you have been registered), until then we can provide this service.

The following sectors should already have been given access to the DHSC PPE Portal:

  • GPs
  • residential social care providers
  • domiciliary social care providers
  • pharmacies
  • dentists
  • orthodontists
  • optometrists
  • children's care homes and secure homes

  • residential drug and alcohol services

If you believe you are one of these sectors but have not been invited to sign up to the PPE Portal, please call the DHSC Free PPE Portal customer service team on 0800 876 6802. The team is available from 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
