    Some 1,500 former health staff from across the North West are back on the Covid 'front line' after returning to the NHS in response to the call to support the coronavirus effort.

    They had previously retired or left their profession and have been offered for deployment to a number of hospitals in the region, as well as the NHS 111 service and other health and care services; hundreds are already back in work, with others on standby if needed.

    They
    include more than 500 medics, 500 nurses and almost 400 other health workers who come under the title of Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) - AHPs include occupational therapists, operating department practitioners, paramedics, physiotherapists, diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers, and speech and language therapists.

    Returners are undergoing an e-learning programme of induction, mandatory training and upskilling specific to their profession developed by Health Education England.

    NHS North West Regional Director Bill McCarthy commended the commitment and spirit of those who have come forward, saying: “We have been overwhelmed by the response from former NHS staff in our region and want to say a massive thank you to all those who are already deployed or awaiting placement in one of our organisations.

    “Many organisations in the North West will now be able to benefit from their skills and years of experience. It is an encouraging sign that we have not yet needed to call upon all those who came forward, but it is extremely reassuring to know that they are there to support the NHS in our region.

    “Everyone can do their bit to help with this effort by continuing to stay at home as much as possible and washing hands regularly.”
