This is a nationwide appeal in efforts against Coronavirus(COVID-19)
The NHS partners are looking for individuals who can support in the purchase of medical equipment and supplies, providing accommodation for key staff and welfare initiatives to support staff and more – not just now, but in the weeks and months to come.
This is part of the Government’s response to Coronavirus(COVID-19).

Right now, our staff are under an unprecedented amount of pressure and are working endlessly to deal with the impact of COVID-19. They are literally pulling out all the stops to ensure they are providing the very best of care now – and that they will be able to cope with the predicted rise in patient numbers.
Let’s keep all people safe especially our elderly and vulnerable patients.
Only by uniting together can we beat this virus that is sweeping our country.
