COVID-19 Response

Corps member Grace Harrison has produced a beautiful drawing to commemorate our COVID-19 response.

The nightingale refers to NHS Nightingale Hospital London, where over 45 members served in a number of roles supporting the NHS. The red herring is a symbol of the Corps. During the First World War Surgeon-General Woodhouse uttered the immortal words which sums up what we have been ever since - impossible to categorise: “they’re neither fish nor fowl, but damned fine red herring”.

Our COVID-19 response involved 94% of the Corps, who gave over 700 support days to 6 different organisations, including NHS Nightingale London. It was our privilege to to play a part in the fight against COVID-19.
