Thousands need protection against coronavirus
Responding to comments from Number 10 today (Tuesday) that nearly 8m pieces of personal protective equipment have been delivered to care homes, UNISON assistant general secretary Christina McAnea said:
“Thousands of care staff have contacted UNISON to say getting protective kit is still a real issue and they don’t have what they need.
“Many are scared for themselves, their families and those they look after. Staff need to be protected otherwise the consequences don’t bear thinking about.”
