Call for Islanders to become volunteer responders during Coronavirus outbreak

UK Convention center to become emergency hospital

"NHS staff are pulling out all the stops to ensure those who need care receive it, and creating a bank of helpers that they can call upon to support their most vulnerable patients through this hard time is going to be invaluable, so I would urge anyone who can to sign up as an NHS Volunteer Responder today".

The nation is looking for up to 250,000 volunteers to help up to 1.5 million people who have been asked to shield themselves from coronavirus because of underlying health conditions.

NHS England medical director Stephen Powis described it as "an absolutely astonishing response".

"You can sign up to volunteer at www.goodsamapp.org/nhs, and don't forget to follow the advice from the NHS: stay home, protect the NHS, and save lives".

NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens praised the "overwhelming response" to the call for volunteers to help the vulnerable and thanked those who will devote their time to the health service.
