I'm shocked that they'll be needed. That's all, really.

Thanks Granny for adding to my list - as you say, we are very fortunate.

First I heard about the B'ham NEC it was being turned into an overflow morgue.
Next bulletin it was going to become a Nightingale ward.
Take your pick!

Does it have to be one or the other Alishka? Most hospitals have mortuaries attached, but they will be overwhelmed with the current high death rates.

I read that St Johns Ambulance are a charity and are well nigh broke at the moment....

The Nursing and Midwifery Council initially asked for nurses who had retired in the last 3 year to consider joining the Covid-19 temporary register. From sometime next week, they are inviting anyone who has retired in the last 5 years to join.

Alishka, I think you misunderstand me. If it's called into use, it has to be both.
