Volunteer register and contact tracing

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to support services in the UK during the coronavirus pandemic so far. As the situation has developed significantly, we have now updated the register and produced a vlog to answer a number of frequently asked questions and update on how the NHS is managing the process of recruitment and how you could be involved in contact tracing. We continue to welcome volunteers and to actively promote the register to key agencies and organisations to ensure that EHPs’ skills are best utilised.
