More than 1,500 members of the public stepped forward in just 24 hours to respond to a call for volunteers and temporary roles with the Welsh Ambulance Service as it manages its response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Individuals from across Wales, including past and retired staff, have registered their interest in a variety of roles across the service following an appeal by the Trust last week.
Applications are now closed and the sifting process has begun.
Claire Vaughan, the Trustâ€™s Executive Director of Workforce and Organisational Development, said: â€œWe are absolutely delighted by the response we received to our online appeal.
â€œThis fantastic response will help us to boost capacity within our workforce during this most challenging of times.’
â€œOur workforce team is working really hard to sift the applications, skill-matching, seeking relevant checks and pairing them geographically to our needs â€“ and so we ask for everyoneâ€™s patience now as this work is done.’
â€œWe sincerely thank everyone who put themselves forward in this most testing of times, and will seek to contact them soon with an update in response to their kind offer.”
