Contractors should have received an email inviting them to register on the portal from the PPE Dedicated Supply Channel (please note this email address does not accept incoming emails): 

Providers are asked to check their mailboxes and junk mail folders for this email. Depending on the provider group this may include their NHS mail account. 

If a contractor cannot find this email or is having any difficulties in registering they should contact the portal customer service team on 0800 876 6802.

Providers are encouraged to register promptly, to ensure they can order their full supply of Covid 19  related PPE from a central inventory. 

Order limits have been set according to patient activity levels but if any provider feels their limit is incorrect then they can contact the portal customer service team on 0800 876 6802
