  • business challenge

    As COVID-19 pandemic escalated trusts needed an accurate way to determine PPE demand, at a healthcare provision level, and model demand as the virus spreads.  Trusts needed sector-wide visibility of PPE stock levels by health and care setting and reduce the risk of delays in delivery and stock outages of key items.

  • our approach
    • Developed and rolled out a PPE Demand Planning Model to enable sector-wide visibility of PPE stock levels by health and care setting
    • Model considers all major provider & community trusts and primary and social care organisations, by health and care setting, reporting stock levels, and level of need, including patient numbers
    • Covers a full range of PPE equipment, and gives the trust visibility of required PPE lines, so senior leadership can raise queries centrally at Regional/National level.
