This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments where a single action from one person can be the difference between life and death for another, and simple acts of kindness are going to make all the difference in keeping some of the most vulnerable people well and out of hospital.
— Dr Nikki Kanani, GP and NHS Director of Primary Care

Volunteers will carry out vital tasks including delivering medicine, driving patients to and from hospital, and making regular phone calls to check on people isolating at home.
