Hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries in Redbridge are appealing to community groups for help to obtain personal protective equipment (PPE).
In spite of the efforts by the government they are looking for more equipment such as masks, aprons, latex gloves, visors and gowns.
Genieveve Carnell, a co-ordinator of the Redbridge Covid-19 Mutual Aid Group, said: “The community aid groups provide support and food parcels to those in need within the borough and we have now received requests from hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries within Redbridge to assist them in sourcing PPE.”
Students at Bancroft’s School in Woodford Green gave up their Easter holidays to make visors, but the Mutual Aid group is appealing to schools and businesses for more help.
