Posted on: April 9, 2020
Staff from a Essex’s public sector organisations have united to support their colleagues in the NHS to ensure community care provision continues during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last weekend, volunteers from a number of public sector organisations worked alongside staff at Braintree and Brentwood community hospitals to prepare the areas for the creation of new wards.
Coordinated through the Essex Resilience Forum (ERF), volunteers from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, the local military, Witham-based logistics company SIMARCO and NHS employees, spent the weekend clearing furniture and moving hospital beds.
