4. Lydia Thompson (Occupational therapists)
Both Thompson and her husband Tom are qualified occupational therapists and have contacted the NHS about heading to the frontline of the outbreak.
“I have been supported by the RFU [Rugby Football Union] to go back, so I have also applied,” said Thompson.
“Me and my husband have only had great experiences of working in the NHS. We’ve kept in touch with our former colleagues and we’re just so impressed and inspired by how hard they’re working, how they’re adapting and how people are changing to adapt to their new job roles. It’s really important and we want to support them.”
