MPs call for action on supply of virus protection equipment

The seven Welsh Conservative MPs across North Wales are calling for urgent action to ensure the region is not left behind in ensuring adequate capacity to treat coronavirus patients.

In recent days, the UK Government has announced the acquisition of private healthcare facilities as well as the setup of "Nightingale" field hospitals at the ExCel Centre in London, the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham and the Manchester Central. 

Similar plans are in place to provide 2,000 emergency beds at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

Simon Baynes MP (Clwyd South) said: “Constituents in Clwyd South are contacting me in large numbers every day to express their concern about the problems being experienced by the Welsh Government in Cardiff with providing sufficient testing and personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline health and social care workers. 

"A key Welsh Government contract to supply testing equipment has fallen through and I would urge the First Minister to redouble his efforts to source and supply testing equipment and PPE to all our brave frontline staff in Wales in the Coronavirus crisis.”
