Dr David Bailey, Chair BMA Welsh Council, said:

“Whilst we have been assured by Welsh Government and Shared Services that there is currently enough PPE stock in Wales to cover demand, and that they are working hard to maintain levels, these are fluctuating.

“We continue to push for transparency and the publication of data at local and national levels and, by working with our members, are closely monitoring the situation on the ground. We simply cannot compromise on the safety of those working to protect us.”
