Personal Protective Equipment: ‘make and buy’ in Scotland
Synopsis: This Briefing Note explains Scotland’s ‘make and buy’ approach to sourcing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during Covid-19. It provides information underpinning that approach, including data on the dramatic increase in demand for PPE in Scotland related to Covid-19. Publicly available information about Scottish PPE procurement is limited. This Note therefore relies heavily on a report published by the Scottish Government in June 2020, and information provided directly to the Research and Information Service (RaISe) by a senior Scottish Government official.
