If you've left the professional register within the last three years as a practitioner in the following specialisms, you'll soon be receiving a letter from your previous professional regulator:
- registered nurse
- occupational therapist
- diagnostic or therapeutic radiographer
- biomedical scientist
- medical practitioner
The letter explains that you have been placed on a temporary register and can now participate in helping with patient care during the present emergency.
If you're a practitioner and are fully registered but not currently working in NHSScotland you can participate too.
You'll be paid and will be part of a supervised team.
For more information on how to get involved, visit the guidance on the Scottish Government website.
