** Ebola Breakout – urgent medic appeal from the British Red Cross **

British Red CrossFrom the British Red Cross We are looking to launch a recruitment campaign to recruit Doctors and Nurses to staff our urgent response to the Ebola outbreak in west Africa. Working with the International Federation of the Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies and we are working to provide additional staff for an isolation unit in Sierra Leone.

We are looking for are qualified and trained medical staff who will be able deploy for a period of around one month. Please note that if an individual is currently patient facing then there would also be a 3 week quarantine period at home in the UK before they could return to normal clinical work. These posts would be paid positions with the British Red Cross.

If any individuals are interested to apply we would ask them to send a CV and cover letter to recruitment@redcross.org.uk. We would then have a process of interview, training, medical check and briefing including discussions of insurance and security, before a deployment.
