Urgent public request to support the Care Home and community care sector

Share this page

Sunday 05 April 2020

Guernsey's health and care providers are facing unprecedented challenges whilst managing the impact of COVID-19 in the Bailiwick.

Community services along with local residential, nursing and care homes are under immense pressure supporting COVID-19 patients in the community alongside the day to day home care in the community that takes place around the clock seven days a week.

The Guernsey Care Home Association and HSC has, today, put out a public request to anyone in Guernsey who has any previous caring experience either formal (working in a care setting) or informal (caring for family member or friends) and who would like to work in the care home and community care sector at this difficult time.

We would welcome interest from anyone (part-time or full-time) who hasn't been in contact with anyone who is COVID-19 positive and isn't showing any symptoms (fever, cough or shortness of breath) and is generally fit and well.

If you are interested in some temporary paid employment and would like to help please contact Community Services who are coordinating a rapid recruitment programme together with Guernsey Care Home Association, on tel 725241 ext 3313 or email Vicky.trench@gov.gg

HSC and the community care sector would like to say thank you all for the help and support in the community at these difficult times.
