Days of PPE left, but hospitals boss promises contingencies in place
United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust boss Andrew Morgan has responded to staff who “do not think we are putting their interests first or trying to keep them safe.”
The trust chief executive has issued a letter in which he says the trust does “not have any immediate shortages” of equipment and that it is acting in line with government guidelines.
“I have been concerned to hear that members of our staff do not think we are putting their interests first or trying to keep them safe,” he wrote.
However, his figures reveal that there is concern over the “timely replenishment of stock” with just two days of fluid resistant masks left and three days of gowns – the former due to get extra delivered today (Monday, April 20) and the latter sparking “contingency plans”.
