As the country begins its release from knockdown, organisations are reviewing their infection policies and duty of care to their stakeholders, whether that be employee, customer, or from a public liability perspective. A key element in the armory employed for cross infection control guidelines will be the portfolio of products and services employed in combating the threat of this disease in the UK. Whilst there is of course an elevated demand for these types of products, our company is taking steps to ensure that wherever possible, our stocking position and that of our distribution partners is not impacted by interruptions or unnatural high demand from external sources. For those institutions looking to review the options of products available, we offer the following advice: -
