HealthShare Victoria’s (HSV) priority throughout the COVID-19 pandemic is to support Victoria’s public health services in maintaining continuity of supply. The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) also tasked HSV with helping to establish a centralised ‘buffer’ stock of essential items.
HSV is sourcing products on behalf of health services
We are currently sourcing the following products on behalf of health services from HSV contracted suppliers and new suppliers:
- surface disinfectants
- protective apparel (gowns, face shields, protective eyewear etc)
- pathology consumables
Please note the Department of Health and Human Services is also seeking products for state-wide stocks. If you have a product that may be of interest, particularly new innovations, please send your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Centralisation of ordering (PPE products)
The Victorian Government has centralised the ordering and distribution of Tier 1 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), swabs, hand sanitisers and critical equipment to ensure that essential supplies reach areas with the greatest clinical need.
Health services can access a list of HSV contracted products which have been redirected to the State Supply Chain (Monash Health) here. Please note only health services can access this file when logged into their account.
