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. Information is available on NHSVR website.

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: england.voluntarypartnerships@nhs.net using the subject line ‘NHSVR Engagement’.
