Please note: We have ongoing difficulty sourcing the type / size of gloves that are suitable for our service at an affordable price.  We have had to change to purchasing large boxes of gloves and splitting them to supply 50 gloves at a time (to cover 25 visits/instances) to ensure continuity of supply for everyone.  Booties also remain in short supply (dry/blue). 

Masks – will only be supplied at Level 1 if your Client has a respiratory condition or current chest issue (infection/cold).

This will continue until supply is readily available or you are advised otherwise.
