The LRF are unable to support non urgent dental practices for PPE. If you need PPE support, please use the following email address; firstname.lastname@example.org or see Dentists Resuming Services at the bottom of the page.
The correct mechanism for all of the above to obtain PPE replenishment is:
- Demand using normal Business as Usual processes (stock is being released to commercial suppliers).
if unavailable then
2. Contact LRF for support from LRF stockpile
and then if unavailable
3. Contact National Supply Distribution Response (NSDR) and request emergency issue of PPE.
