Calling all IT experts: support your NHS today

Calling all IT experts: support your NHS today

There has been a fantastic response to the call for volunteer responders from the UK government. These volunteers are supporting medical staff with tasks such as delivering medicines, ferrying patients to and from appointments and making regular calls to check on those who are isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic. The original call was for around 250,000 people to volunteer but the response was incredible, and now over 750,000 members of the British public have answered!  

To further support this call, David Wylie, People Source Healthcare Director, has built an online community service for IT volunteers to offer their services to the NHS, and for NHS organisations to publish any requirements for volunteers. The platform has built-in functionality for both volunteers and NHS organisations to search for skills and roles.

David and his team quickly worked with a web design company to launch the website in less than a week, and since it went live we have seen an increasing number of volunteers registering on the website each day. A recent advert for IT Support Volunteers in London generated over 1200+ responses.  

You can visit the website for more information about signing up or to publish a requirement here:

The platform is supported by David and our Healthcare Recruitment Team at People Source. They have expressed that if an NHS organisation is not getting the right volunteers then they will go one step further and try to source volunteers themselves for free. 

David has said the following about the platform: “I would be delighted if the platform could benefit NHS IT teams across the UK during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order for it to be successful we firstly need people to know that the platform exists (so please share the website URL with your NHS colleagues!) Secondly we need the NHS to publish their requirements and lastly, and most importantly, we need volunteers to sign-up and generously offer their time and expertise.”

We have made it as easy as possible for both volunteers to sign up and for NHS trusts to post their requirements on the website. We are immensely proud of the website and hope we can support our fantastic NHS and nation through the coronavirus crisis by creating it.
