Former docs and nurses told "Your NHS needs you"

The NHS is calling on more than 65,000 former nurses and doctors to re-join our NHS to help tackle coronavirus and save lives.  

  • Our NHS is working night and day to ensure that anyone and everyone who needs medical assistance gets the highest level of care and support – it’s only right that we give NHS staff our full support in return.
  • To further boost the ranks of our NHS, we are asking more than 65,000 former nurses and doctors who have recently left the healthcare professions to bring their experience and expertise back to our health system. These staff can play a crucial role in maximising our capacity to fight this outbreak - and wherever they can help, they will be hugely welcomed.
  • This continues to be a huge national effort to protect lives and protect our NHS but together we will ensure that we bring about the downward slope of this virus and with it the prospect of normal everyday life returning.
