The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) has issued an emergency call to the Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock to make improved personal protective equipment (PPE) available to all frontline healthcare workers.

The RCSLT’s call was made in partnership with the AGP Alliance – a coalition of healthcare organisations and trade unions campaigning to ensure frontline workers can do their jobs as safely as possible when dealing with cases of confirmed or suspected COVID-19.

The action comes just days after it was revealed that 49,000 hospital staff are currently off work due to the virus, which has led to huge staffing pressures.
