It is important for physicians to review CPSM’s advice on reconciling physicians’ duty to continue providing care with the need to follow PPE guidelines and protect the health of the physician workforce to see us through the pandemic.
PPE Availability & Ordering
What should I do if the recommended PPE is not available?
How do I order PPE?
For community-based physicians, you should:
- First try ordering through your normal supplier.
- If you are looking for help in identifying a new supplier, we can help. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Doctors Manitoba has a limited stock of some PPE products available for purchase at cost. Contact us at email@example.com to inquire.
NOTE: Effective August 28, 2020, Shared Health stopped accepting PPE orders from community-based physicians and discontinued deliveries.
If you work in a hospital or other facility run by an RHA, Shared Health or CancerCare, contact your unit manager and ask them to for help in accessing PPE.
