Delivering for the country

Royal Mail is one of the UK’s essential services, providing a lifeline to businesses and communities everywhere.

The delivery of parcels and letters is a crucial way of keeping the country together, businesses operating, and helping many people who may not have the option to leave their homes.

Royal Mail is also delivering PPE to care homes, GP surgeries, pharmacies, dentists, optometrists and children’s social care providers. As a key partner in the delivery of this essential PPE, Royal Mail has been working in partnership with eBay and Clipper Logistics to support a major Government initiative to ensure that frontline health and social care workers receive crucial PPE throughout the pandemic. Postmen and postwomen have been going the extra mile to ensure that staff at care homes and other healthcare providers are able to maintain social distancing when accepting packages.

Royal Mail has also been a key partner for the Government’s COVID-19 testing programme. We have been delivering tens of millions of COVID-19 tests to and collecting them from addresses across the UK.
