An urgent request
The Waterside GP surgeries have combined their resources to create a single treatment centre at the Waterside Health Centre of Red and Green Practice for tackling the Coronavirus. The Red and Green Practice is asking any local car body repairers, asbestos cleaning companies, or any equipment suppliers that may have access to organic vapour proof masks to help to keep our staff safe and support the NHS with the fight against coronavirus, to consider making a donation of masks. Please contact the practice manager Phil Sayers (email@example.com) (or if unavailable Dr Jon Kenrick) at waterside Heath Centre as a matter of priority.
If you are a patient reading this request and know of a possible source of protective face masks, please forward this request. Thank you in anticipation for your help.
