  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Submitting key PPE figures to national bodies which determine PPE we receive, ensuring we do not run out of any. Manipulating burn rates to adjust to rise or fall in demand, attending meetings with key stakeholders to address any issues. Raising requisitions for wards/departments, creating purchase orders for suppliers. Answering any queries there may be. Handling any field safety notices and ensuring appropriate action was taken if we held any affected products on site.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • Plenty of new skills and character building traits. Enhancing the ability to communicate, organise and prioritise. Developed my confidence a huge amount, probably the greatest asset I have developed. Not being afraid to contribute my thoughts and ideas to senior members of staff. The ability to persevere and deal with unusual situations, especially during Covid as day-to-day can be very unpredictable. Being pro-active and not leaving tasks till the last minute, preparing ahead of things.
