New PPE arrangements from 1 January 2023 for Primary Care Services
As part of the National COVID-19 Health Management Plan for 2023, all Living with COVID measures scheduled to cease on 31 December 2022 have been reviewed by the Department of Health and Ageing.
As of 15 December 2022, there will be no further orders taken for PPE via CESPHN and distributed by the Department of Health and Ageing and DHL.
General practices should source their PPE through local commercial suppliers.
Pulse oximeters for your patients:
CESPHN is still providing pulse oximeters until further notice:
- Individual patients – we have access to a small supply of oximeters. GPs with patients they believe require a pulse oximeter urgently are asked to complete this CESPHN Pulse Oximeter Patient – online form with the patients details and we will arrange delivery of an oximeter
- General practices – practices actively seeing moderate risk COVID positive patients can also be sent up to 10 pulse oximeters per practice via the new PULSE OXIMETER General Practice – online order form.
