P2/N95 Respirators Form

As part of the continued response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Department of Health supplied PHNs with a very small allocation of P2/N95 respirators.

For routine primary care procedures, including specimen collection, surgical masks are considered to be effective when specimen collection is undertaken they should be worn with other PPE as appropriate (gown, gloves and eye protection).

P2/N95 respirators are only required for aerosol generating procedures or where there is uncontrolled coughing.

  • The P2 masks are only for distribution to General Practices who have indicated that they are undertaking the specimen collection in their surgeries.
  • Please identify who and where the respirators should be sent to:
