Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it comes as little surprise that we currently face a worldwide shortage of Personal Protective Equipment. We have seen months worth of stock snapped up in a matter of hours and suppliers have been affected by both lockdowns and a surge in demand.
So what does this mean for you? In short we are imposing restrictions on the amount of some products that people can purchase, including PPE and a few other very limited supply products. We're doing this to try and ensure that our diminishing stocks go to Care customers looking after the frail and elderly and Nurseries who are looking after children for essential Key Workers.
All of our limited products are now clearly marked throughout the website as being. We will be sending out invitations to customers that will allow them to include PPE+ products on an order. Those invitations will be sent by looking at customers who regularly order with us across the UK and their registered customer type. If you've not received an invitation you can still place orders for products from the rest of our range - this includes janitorial supplies, stationary and arts & crafts.
Pandemic Flu Stocks
As part of the Department of Health & Social Care Covid-19: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Plan, Gompels have been passed three products from the Pandemic Flu Stocks. These three products are mandated for supply to CQC registered settings operating within England. The rest of our range remains without restrictions on geographic location.
