Former naval medic re-joins the Service to help the struggle against Coronavirus

A former naval medic from the New Forest has re-joined the Service to help the national struggle against Coronavirus.

Jordan Holland spent eight years as a Royal Navy medical assistant before she left the service last year to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time artist.

But the 29-year-old has now signed back on as medical assistant to join the fight against COVID-19.

This week Jordan returned to HMS Nelson in Portsmouth, re-joined the Navy, received her uniform ahead of being assigned to one of the MOD’s Joint Hospital Group – the Forces medical personnel who are attached to NHS hospital trusts around the country.

It’s an unprecedented time for the world, but it’s great to feel like you can do something.
