DAUK in The Guardian on lack of fit testing

Dr Rinesh Parmar, DAUK’s chair, said: “We’ve been hearing from doctors across the country that they’ve been sent different masks. This is extremely worrying for doctors, who have been tested on one type and receive another. Fit testing is time-consuming and only available in the day. Doctors have written about their fears of coming in for a nightshift and being presented with a mask that they have not been tested on.”
