Where can I get support if I am self-isolating?

Are you self-isolating and in need of support? Find out more about how an NHS Volunteer Responder can help you.

We know that some kidney cancer patients have not received a letter to inform them that they are at the highest clinical risk from coronavirus (COVID-19) and they are extremely vulnerable. However, these people are experiencing problems in getting essential shopping and collecting repeat prescriptions, and still require help or support due to shielding or isolation.

If you don’t have support from family or friends, help is available from the NHS Volunteer Responder scheme. If you are currently not supported and need some help with shopping, a prescription collection or a friendly chat, then the NHS Volunteer Responders are ready to help. Please take a look at the following link for details on how to connect: NHS Volunteer Responders

Help may also be available via your local council; they might have a volunteer scheme running locally. Each council website should have a call centre helpline number for help and support during these challenging times.
