Congratulations to DPR Workshop Manager Andre Michael-Carter signing up to become a call volunteer. Only 249,999 more needed
The NHS is “rallying the troops” for the war on coronavirus, with volunteers being called up to help vulnerable people stay safe and well at home. The nation is looking for up to 250,000 volunteers to help up to 1.5 million people who have been asked to shield themselves from coronavirus because of underlying health conditions.
Members of the public can sign up quickly and easily at https://www.goodsamapp.org/NHSvolunteerresponders to become NHS Volunteer Responders, and can be called on to do simple but vital tasks such as: – delivering medicines from pharmacies; – driving patients to appointments; – bringing them home from hospital; – or making regular phone calls to check on people isolating at home.
NHS Volunteer Responders is not intended to replace local groups helping their vulnerable neighbours but is an additional service provided by the NHS. GPs, doctors, pharmacists, nurses, midwives, NHS 111 advisers and social care staff will all be able to request help for their at-risk patients via a call centre run by the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS), who will match people who need help with volunteers who live near to them. Some charities will also be able to refer people to the service.
