RAF reservists have set up a drive-in treatment tent at a health centre in Cornwall to allow vulnerable patients to limit their exposure to Covid-19.
Volunteers from 505 Wessex Squadron built the temporary clinic at Newquay Health Centre, which allows patients to remain in their cars while being checked by medical staff.
Dr Rutesh Patel said the facilities were vital to protecting vulnerable patients, particularly those who are "over-70, with irregular heart rhythms" and on blood-thinning medication.
Dr Patel (pictured) said: "By them being able to drive in, stay in their cars and pop their hand out of the window to have this finger prick blood test means they are limiting their exposure and risk."
Sqn Ldr David Mann said there was a "major drive" for military reservists to provide national and community assistance.
He said: "We're looking at mobilising up to 3,000 reservists across the armed forces to help with formal taskings.
"But where if possible as well we can help our neighbors in the local community."
