PPE Portal Team, Department of Health and Social Care

PPE Portal Team

The PPE Portal is an outstanding innovation that has been developed in partnership with the armed services, eBay, Clipper Logistics, Volo Commerce  and Royal Mail to develop a service from scratch, to respond to the extra need for PPE for primary and social care providers which has arisen as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. From a standing start in March, the team have onboarded just under fifty thousand providers and distributed more than 1.2 billion items of PPE to critical front line services.

The PPE Portal partnership not only spans the boundaries of the public and private sector, but also traverses national borders, collaborating with the EU to gain EU State Aid for £1.3 billion within two months, to ensure PPE is free for those who need it most.
