Health and social care COVID-19 accelerated recruitment

NHS Scotland

Sorry, this job has been removed. However, you can find similar jobs here.

We’re asking you to help us fight COVID-19. The virus will put a huge demand on both the NHS and social services, but you can make a real difference.

The people of Scotland need allied health professionals, biomedical scientists, doctors, midwives, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and social service workers to care for them now more than ever.

Temporary emergency registration for healthcare professionals and students

If you’ve left a professional register within the last 3 years, you’ll soon receive a letter from your previous professional regulator:

  • General Medical Council
  • General Pharmaceutical Council
  • Health and Care Professions Council
  • Nursing and Midwifery Council

The letter explains you have been placed on a temporary register. It means you can now help to care for patients during the current public health emergency.

If you’re a registered healthcare practitioner, but not currently working in NHSScotland, you can participate too.

If you’re a student, your university or college will contact you about working for the NHS.

You can still offer support even if you’re in a group considered to be at increased risk. There are lots of roles in secondary, community and primary care that are not patient-facing.

Temporary social worker register

If you were previously registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC), you will be contacted asking if you’d like to come back to work in social care. The SSSC has set up a temporary social worker register and will contact those eligible to apply.
