No shortage of PPE in Donegal following fire – HSE

The HSE has given reassurances that Letterkenny University Hospital currently has an adequate supply of PPE following yesterday's fire. 

A large number of supplies were damaged in a HSE storage building close to Watson Hire.

However the hospital is continuing to receive deliveries directly a number of times a week.

Sligo stores will dispatch all Community PPE this week to Donegal.

There is no lack of supply of PPE to either Donegal Community Services or Letterkenny University Hospital.

All deliveries will continue as normal, as contingency plans have been put in place.

A temporary storage facility is being established in a building known as the 'Vestry' in St Conals.

A full assessment of the situation is being undertaken.
