How we're responding to COVID-19
St John Ambulance has unveiled a series of measures to support the NHS and the public as the nation battles the coronavirus outbreak.
The deployment of volunteers to hospital emergency departments has been piloted, and the charity’s ambulances and highly trained crews are being put at the health service’s disposal.
Volunteers will also be working shoulder to shoulder with the NHS and armed forces at the new Nightingale Hospital in London.
Further activity will be ramped up as the Government enables people to take time off work and volunteer on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19.
St John is also working on fast tracking more people with existing first aid qualifications and clinical skills into the organisation, with more details to be announced shortly.
