In light of the urgent need to recruit qualified staff to assist with the current Ebola crisis in West Africa, the School has created a volunteer response register for interested School staff, students and alumni. The Ebola response register is designed to assist our partners in the field to identify people who are suitably qualified and available to volunteer.

We are currently working with the World Health Organization (WHO), Save the Children, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), International Medical Corps UK and Kings Sierra Leone Partnership. These organisations are looking for staff (both clinical and non-clinical) to be deployed to West Africa, primarily Sierra Leone. WHO is also looking for technical and administrative assistance both in Geneva and remotely.

If you are interested in volunteering, please register your interest .

Please note: We are only able to coordinate volunteering opportunities for School staff and alumni.

      Thanks Mary,
      Those currently working for the NHS wanting to volunteer for the Ebola response will need to do so via the UKIEMR (www.uk-med.org) as this is the official UK government mechanism for NHS staff deploying to emergencies.
