NHS England staff along with the Army are managing these facilities and are setting up the beds and clinical services which will be needed to care for potentially more than 4000 patients. Doctors, nurses and healthcare scientists will be drawn from hospitals and Trusts across the surrounding regions, additional support staff will be needed to ensure that services continue to run smoothly.
Under normal operations, engineers and technicians work quietly in the background. With such unprecedented circumstances before us, this is no-longer the case. The effective delivery of clinical care will only be achieved if engineers and technicians work alongside their clinical counterparts.
Time is of the essence and it is likely that volunteer engineers and technicians will be needed on site and in the regional hospitals within the week, if not within the next few days.
If you would like to volunteer, please complete this form.
Selection will be made by the NHS team based on need and the Royal Academy of Engineering has agreed to maintain the database.
Thank you for your commitment and support in these extraordinary times.
