RAENG is looking for all kinds of volunteer technicians and engineers , to help with set-up, maintenance and repairs of medical equipment under the supervision of clinical engineers from NHS England.
The form seems ok with people without formal qualifications and the person spec too. Volunteering posts: Manchester, Birmingham and London (to start)
As you are aware, there are a number of new medical facilities being built at ExCel London - as well as two other Field Hospitals in Manchester and Birmingham - to treat patients with COVID-19. The NHS England staff along with the Army are managing these facilities and are well on the way to setting up the ITU beds and clinical services which will be needed to care for potentially over 4000 patients. However, as doctors, nurses and healthcare scientists are drawn from the hospitals and Trusts across the surrounding regions, additional support staff will be needed to ensure that services continue to run smoothly.
We have been approached by NHS England to find volunteers to help with a range of engineering requirements that will enable them to continue to deliver frontline services.
We know there a couple of ex-biomeds in the Restart community. Are there others who might be interested in helping? Please share your reactions below.
