FAQs for NHS Volunteer Responders

Support in action

How far am I reasonably expected to travel in order to fulfil a request?

Most of the travel requests will be very local, less than 5 miles. In more rural areas this will increase to a maximum of 20 miles.

Can I provide support after 7:30pm?

Alerts will be sent to people during the daytime, but this does not mean they need to be actioned at that time (NHS transport request). You can carry out your task at a time that is mutually convenient, but would need to accept the request before 7:30pm.
