The current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which began in December 2019, presents a significant challenge for the entire world. The UK Government and the Devolved Administrations, including the health and social care systems, have planned extensively over
the years for an event like this – UK Government, gov.uk/coronavirus.
To support the National Campaign to beat this threat to lives, the National Technician Development Centre (NTDC) has been tasked to enable the collection and dissemination of information and resources from the HE sector and research institutions. This will improve the
speed of connectivity between service and product providers and those that require additional resource support. Full details are available on the Covid-19 tab on the NTDC website and we have a dedicated email that we can be contacted on directly firstname.lastname@example.org
We are asking you, if you have information on products, services, information or online courses that could be provided or shared, to complete 1 or 2 google forms so that we can update our Covid-19 resources web pages accordingly.
