A support group offering legal advice to NHS staff and other workers who refuse to get a Covid shot is run by a conspiracy theorist who claims the virus is a hoax.
Kerry Bishop, 62, operates Helping Hands, a so-called ‘free and confidential self-help group’ which has 7,000 followers on its Facebook page.
The Wales gift shop owner claims she has been ‘inundated’ with emails from NHS workers who refuse to be vaccinated and risk losing their jobs in April when new rules come into force which require that all health personnel be hit twice.

Helping Hands provides sample letters that staff can send to employers claiming that forcing them to receive an injection violates their human rights.
It also provides letters for parents to send to schools saying their children are exempt from testing for mental health reasons.
But The Mail on Sunday can reveal that Ms Bishop is an ardent anti-vaxxer who questions the very existence of coronavirus.
In a Facebook post last September, she wrote: “If they can’t prove there is a virus, how can that be a risk? And there’s no proof yet – there’s actually a $1,000,000 reward for the first person to prove it exists.

She also alleged that her son Kyle, 34, suffered blood clots and heart problems from his three strokes, but he told the MoS that was untrue.
Last night Ms Bishop said: ‘I’m not a conspiracy theorist, I’m a truther. I help people with the law and remind them of their rights. Helping Hands is purely impartial.
