I have been unable to access ANY NHS sites all day. They are just timing out.

I assume they are just swamped with people trying to connect.

Didn't it say they have already got over 100,000 volunteers?

Posted by: jo anne (32703)   Report abuse
Thanks, Basil, you’re right:

“The government scheme to recruit 250,000 helpers went live on Tuesday.
By Wednesday morning, they had exceeded their target …” (BBC)

It seems you can still register via goodsamapp.org/NHS (for now)
