Yorkshire Coast Urged To Donate PPE To Saint Catherine's

Yorkshire Coast Urged To Donate PPE To Saint Catherine's

Published by Karen Liu at 9:49am 7th April 2020.

Saint Catherine’s is appealing for donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) to help ensure stocks are available to frontline staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The charity's patients are still being cared for both at the hospice and at home. Staff are working around the clock to ensure that care is delivered safely to patients and loved ones.

The number one priority at Saint Catherine’s is the safety of patients, staff, volunteers and visitors.

With this in mind, and in line with Government guidance, it says it is essential for them to have a good supply of gloves, aprons, face shields, gowns, and goggles.

Mike Wilkerson, Chief Executive, explained:

“We are receiving some PPE from the NHS supply at no cost, some we have to buy and some is being donated.

The requirements for staff to wear specific PPE are increasing and we are making more items available to ensure that staff can work safely, while caring for others.”

If you can help please email general@saintcatherines.org.uk and they will make contact with you.

Please do not drop anything off directly until they have spoken to you.
