The number of people who have died at Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals has sadly reached 67.
The MA council chairman Dr Chaand Nagpaul said “Two months into the Covid-19 crisis in Britain, we shouldn’t still be hearing that doctors feel unprotected when they go to work.
“The Government says that one billion items will soon have been shipped, and while there have been signs of improvement, our research clearly shows that equipment is not reaching all doctors working on the front line”.
He added “Just yesterday the Health and Social Care Secretary said he could not guarantee that hospitals would not run out this weekend. Meanwhile, the BMA has been inundated with approaches from companies offering to do their bit to supply the NHS. This is a truly sorry state of affairs and we renew our call for the Government to work with manufacturers to ramp up domestic supply”.
