Client Need

The DHSC had run dangerously low on stock of type 3/4 protective coveralls and nitrile examination gloves due to existing supply lines lack of ability to meet the requirements. As a result, cases were being reported of health staff lacking sufficient protection in COVID situations.

Santé Solution

Santé were asked to offer a solution, which saw us rapidly sourcing, validating and procuring certified product to remedy this situation. In the meantime, the government-contracted freight forwarding arrangements broke down under pressure, so Santé sourced alternative freight.

End Result

The goods were delivered on time and are in stock in the UK. Santé is now the largest supplier of disposable examination gloves to the UK Department of Health and with largest supplier to DHSC in 2020.


During 2020 Santé delivered over one billion gloves to the UK Government.
