"Never Run Out" the Hospital Supply Chain Teams Response

In the face of a national shortage the hospital supply chain team’s proactive and innovative approach ensured that front line clinical staff never ran out of PPE or equipment. From setting up a 3D print farm, arranging the first airlift out of China, to providing over 1.5 million items of PPE as mutual aid to healthcare organisations across London the work of the team over the last 12 months demonstrates the essential role that Hospital supply chain teams undertook in responding to COVID-19 to keep clinical staff safe.
