COVID-19 or coronavirus is here and every one of us is taking action to reduce the impact it has on our families and communities.
We’re washing our hands, we’re staying at home, we’re thinking of those who are most vulnerable.
And, in our health service, we’re preparing to care for the people who will be affected.
We are asking all healthcare professionals from all disciplines who are not already working in the public health service to register to be on call for Ireland.
We will be creating extra hospital and care beds and will need extra hands to provide the care that’s needed. We need your help to meet the challenge that’s ahead.
Maybe you aren’t a healthcare professional, maybe you’re studying to be one, or maybe you have other skills to offer or just want to volunteer to do your bit if needed.
Hopefully we won’t need to call, and if we do, we may not need every one of you. But knowing you are there if we do will make all the difference.
To get more information about being on call for Ireland, go to our sign-up page.
You can read more about the people we need, how this will work, and fill in the enquiry form.
We’ll ask you to give us details of your registration, experience or skills.
