Olympics chief brought in to boost PPE production

London 2012 chief executive Lord Deighton has been appointed to lead the national effort to produce essential personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline health and social care staff.

He will coordinate the end-to-end process of design through to manufacture, including streamlining the approvals and procurement process to ensure new domestic PPE supplies are rapidly approved and get to where they are needed. The programme will start to deliver PPE supplies in the next week.
