The Government wasted over £9.9 billion on PPE, which is more than it would cost to give every nurse in the NHS a 100 per cent bonus on their salary.
The figure comes from the Department of Health’s Annual Report, which reveals it spent:
- £673 million on PPE “not suitable for any use”
- £2,581 million on PPE “not suitable for use in the NHS”
- £4.7 billion paying inflated pandemic prices for PPE we didn’t need to buy
- £750 million buying PPE which will pass its expiry date before we can use it.
