“They have been helping in a wide range of areas, from logistics and supporting people when they come for vaccination to answering phones and booking people in,” said a spokesperson for the local heath board.

In addition to the six working in Powys, there are another 64 RAF personnel and 14 Army Combat Medical Technicians, under Joint Military Command Wales, deployed as part of the vaccination support force supporting other health boards in Wales.
