NHS Volunteers

Do you need support from a NHS Volunteer Responder?

NHS Volunteer Responders have been set up to help support vulnerable individuals who are self-isolating.

Priority will be given to those identified as most at risk from COVID-19 and asked to self-isolate at home for an extended period, and to those who health practitioners and local authorities consider to be vulnerable.

The volunteer initiative is being delivered by NHS England and NHS Improvement in partnership with Royal Voluntary Service and enabled by the GoodSam Responders app.

High risk patients can call directly themselves on 0808 196 3382 or speak to one of us at the surgery to find out more.

NHS Volunteer Responders can be asked to help individuals with tasks such as delivering medicines from pharmacies; driving patients to appointments; bringing them home from hospital; and regular phone calls.
