It's sad that to begin with the Tories seemed to be doing so well, yet now its starting to unravel.
The PPE from Turkey debacle for a start. The government claiming it was being sent on Sunday, yet it hadn't even been ordered!
British companies with huge supplies of PPE desperate to sell to the NHS at cost price yet for some reason the government dont want to know!
I am supplied with 4 masks which get replaced when used. The Home Office have said they are made to last a full 8 hour shift.
Odd then that when I have to do a bed watch at the hospital I get asked by a nurse how long I have had it on for as they are good for 3 hours max!
It's also increasingly embarrassing when we turn up to a job with better PPE than the paramedics.
Interesting... I’ve spent a lot of time scouring the internet for info on this virus .. and watched loads of stuff on telly and listened to hours of chat on the radio ... this is what other seemingly knowledgeable people are saying....
As regards those companies who claimed to have offered loads of PPE to the government but were turned down ...
Supposedly SOME of them didn’t even have any equipment at all they were actually just agents / middle men who were actually trying to get big orders and were then going to buy the PPE off someone else to sell to the government at considerable profit .. some of others only had relatively small stocks to sell and as such simply disregarded as the government needed to buy huge quantities .
There were many who actually had decent amounts of PPE but they wanted around TWENTY times the actual value and were simply offering their stuff to everyone and getting them to bid against each other ..
