Isn't this to take the strain of the NHS? In Sweden SAS is doing the same with their cabin staff
Makes complete sense to me. They don't have a job to go to but are qualified to help out at hospitals, why wouldn't they?
It was the speed at which they laid staff off originally, now using the company name in a positive vain and getting credit and us picking up the bill.
Of course it is a good thing, but if publicised as "Laid off staff from Virgin and Easy Jet volunteer for Nightingale" has a more positive ring.

Last year, it won a cash settlement from several NHS trusts when it took court action over a children’s services contract in Surrey, with details of the £2m payout only revealed recently in their accounts.
