PaLS PPE Statistics (COVID-19)

Information detailed below is derived from the Health and Social Care (HSC) Finance Procurement and Logistics (FPL) system and other management information sources available to BSO's Procurement and Logistics Service (PaLS).  The data included in these tables presents the latest number of Core Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) items and COVID-19 impacted products which have been delivered by PaLS to HSC Services in Northern Ireland, from the BSO central distribution facility.  Primary Care providers (e.g. Dentists) may use equipment provided by PaLS, but may also separately purchase other equipment in addition to this.  This is also true of Secondary Care providers but to a much lesser extent.  The figures presented in this document only represent those items delivered by PaLS, not those purchased/sourced from other suppliers.
