25.3.20 COVID-19 Primary Care bulletin
Dear primary care colleagues,
Yesterday we called on people across the country to act as NHS Volunteer Responders and more than 400,000 people have signed up already. This group will be crucial to support the vulnerable patients we have identified, and the work you are doing. Volunteers will be able to help with tasks such as delivering medicines from pharmacies; driving patients to appointments; bringing them home from hospital and regular phone calls to check they are ok. We would encourage all practices to sign up as referrers and further guidance on how you can make best use of this resource for your patients and communities will be made available shortly.
