Plea for long-sleeved hospital gowns

  • Long-sleeved gowns needed at Harrogate District Hospital.
  • Health bosses have sent out a plea on social media.
  • It's calling on hairdressers, dental surgeries and anyone else who has access to them to please get in touch by emailing hdft.hhcc@nhs.net.

Harrogate District Hospital is appealing for help in sourcing long-sleeved gowns for staff.

As many health trusts across the country face a shortage of personal protective equipment, there are concerns locally that PPE is running low.

Health bosses have put out an urgent appeal for gowns on Facebook.

They are now asking the local community to help out if possible.

Colleagues are in need of gowns that have sleeves below the elbow and be water-resistant.

Hospital chiefs are calling on hairdressers, dental surgeries and anyone else who has access to them to please get in touch. 

Anyone who can help, email hdft.hhcc@nhs.net.
