NHS Volunteer Responders: suspension of direct patient support

Direct services to patients from NHS Volunteer Responders (NHSVR) will be suspended from 13 May 2022 as the programme refocuses on current health and care challenges.

Final patient referral dates for delivery of shopping and medication, patient transport and telephone companionship are on the NHSVR website. Clients have been contacted by letter and those with additional vulnerabilities will automatically receive support until 13 May.

NHS organisations and community pharmacies can continue to request NHSVR support for vaccination Steward Volunteers and NHS goods transport services. To help shape the future volunteer programme email: using the subject line NHSVR Engagement.
