Local organisations deliver PPE to GP surgeries across Norfolk and Waveney

Local charity Norwich Door to Door has stepped in to deliver vital PPE supplies to GP practices across Norfolk and Waveney.

With a reduced need to travel in the current climate the charity has turned its hand to helping the community in other ways by providing volunteers and vehicles to deliver PPE to frontline staff during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. They join a growing army of local volunteers and organisation who have donated their time and resources to help get supplies to those who need it.

Ian Elliott, CEO of Norwich Door to Door said: “As a Charity ourselves we understand how important it is for everyone to support each other particularly at times like this. We are really pleased to be able to support the NHS in this way by getting these vital supplies those who need it by transporting PPE across Norfolk and Waveney in our mini buses.”

This delivery service is separate from and in addition to the national PPE online ordering process.

Locally, the Norfolk Resilience Forum (NRF), made up of local public sector organisations including the NHS, has received offers of PPE from 180 companies following a successful campaign.

In addition, CCG staff have been redeployed to support frontline services and a small team has managed to buy more than half a million items of PPE such as gloves and masks.

Practices have been asked to order from national supplies if possible but if they begin to run short, the CCG delivers. As well as Norwich Door to Door, there’s a small army of CCG staff and relatives who are driving out PPE when its needed as well as other organisations including Norwich City Community Sports Foundation.

Melanie Craig, Chief Officer of NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said: “We are hugely grateful to organisations such as Norwich Door to Door and Norwich City Community Sports Foundation who have donated their time, people power and vehicles in order to deliver PPE to those on the front line who need it. This means that our staff can focus their time and energy on helping patients and supporting front line services.”
