Can you help our local Doctors?
Posted on 4 Jul 2019
Volunteers are needed to provide continued service to patients who have no other means of transport to attend for an NHS consultation at the GPs. This service greatly helps our local doctors by reducing requests for home visits. Patients are also taken to local hospitals and medical facilities.
This vital service was established in 1999 by Knutsford Good Neighbours and operates through the telephone system, Monday to Friday, where a daily volunteer at home takes requests and allocates a volunteer driver from a prepared list showing the individual driver's availability. Clients make donations and drivers are reimbursed for costs. We average 20 requests each week.
Do please help, even if you can only offer help on one day a week.
Ring Sandra or Peter on 01565 651475 for more information.
