    A GP has criticised the practice of giving doctors surgical masks with expiry dates that have passed. Dr Kate Jack said doctors felt "like cannon fodder" after discovering the paper masks had expired in 2016. A box delivered to her Nottingham surgery had a 2021 label placed over the original date of 2016.

"I don't feel protected at the moment," said Dr Jack, a GP of 22 years. "They are really not designed for prevention of infection and a

As outreach nurses, we come into contact with many different types of patient on a daily basis. We could be seeing a surgical patient with sepsis to a pre-eclamptic lady on maternity, it just depends on who needs you. The varied case load is what I enjoy; the work can be stressful, but we have numerous algorithms, policies and procedures that we follow. These policies and procedures keep our patient safe and also gives us evidence-based approach to the treatment we give.

    The health secretary has acknowledged there have been "challenges" with the supply of personal protective equipment to NHS staff in England - but added he is determined to rise to them. Last week, NHS staff said the lack of protective gear was putting them at risk during the coronavirus outbreak.
