A Glasgow Caledonian University professor has joined students on the nursing frontline to help with Covid-19 testing.
Andrea Nelson, dean of the school of health and life sciences, takes Fridays off as annual leave to cover her NHS shift.
She also donates her salary to the GCU Foundation Common Good Fund.
Prof Nelson, a registered adult nurse, has been working alongside undergraduates at the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Covid-19 Community Assessment Centre in north Glasgow.
She re-registered in April and was assigned to the centre after eight hours of mandatory update training.
Prof Nelson said: "Getting ready for deployment, navigating all of the processes to register my application and completing the training, gave me renewed respect for our students who are doing this in addition to their studies, clinical placement and university assessments."
