Supply of PPE to the dentistry sector during the coronavirus pandemic

I have received a number of e-mails about the difficulties the dentistry sector is experiencing during the coronavirus pandemic in relation to obtaining PPE.

Ensuring our front line staff are properly protected is of paramount importance to me, as it is to all my parliamentary colleagues.  It is an issue that is being taken incredibly seriously across government.

I have been pleased to learn that the army has been working to distribute equipment and supplies.  I also strongly support the appointment of Lord Deighton - who was responsible for delivering the London 2012 Olympics - to work across the public and private sector to co-ordinate this unprecedented peace-time challenge.
