NHS welcomes military support

Military colleagues are supporting the NHS response to the second wave of the pandemic in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire from today – 20 January.

Many NHS organisations around the country, including the wider South West, are welcoming teams to provide support where it would be of most benefit.

A system spokesman said: 

“We are really pleased to have this support for our response as there are increasing number of people being hospitalised with Covid-19; people may see military personnel in reception areas as well as in clinical areas of our hospitals assisting our staff.

“It remains really important that everyone helps by staying at home, follow Hands, Face, Space when outside and use services appropriately.”
