The NHS are looking for 250,000 volunteers to help with the current coronavirus crisis.

It's looking likely that I'll be furloughed at my job within the next few days so I applied for two of the new NHS volunteer positions here:

https://www.goodsamapp.org/NHS

There are four different roles which you can read about above. All of them except Check-in and Chat volunteer require a method of transport (pushbike is included) and Patient Transport volunteer requires a recent DBS check. You have to be over 18 to apply.

Personally, I think it's absolutely awesome that people are signing up to do this. We all need to pitch in, and I would too if I could.
We need to help our NHS as much as possible

Ok so it turns out that I'm not being furloughed, at least for now :lol:

But it would be great to hear stories from those who do volunteer!

I have volunteered! They’re still going through people’s IDs so I expect to wait for a week or so.
