NHS Volunteer Responders referral and Steward Volunteer request form
This form is for:
- Requesting Steward Volunteers for COVID-19 vaccination sites
- Referring individuals or NHS organisations for support from volunteers. The types of support are listed below.
When you submit your first request you will receive an emailed verification link. Once you have clicked this link you will automatically be registered and your requests for support will be live in the GoodSAM app. This means the app will allocate the tasks to available volunteers in relevant locations. All of your further referrals will be live immediately.
You will have access to a dashboard which shows whether the requests/referrals you have entered
have been matched with volunteers.
Full instructions are in this PDF instruction document
All support requests, except Check in and chat plus and COVID Vaccination Stewards are time limited.
Referrals can be requested for 4 weeks support only. After this you will need to place a new referral
should a patient still need support. For example, if you would like a volunteer to provide patient
transport support weekly, tasks will stop alerting volunteers after 4 weeks.
Please note if you have an existing Community Response plus referral, these have now been moved to a one off task,
whereby a volunteer will be matched to a patient for a period of 4 weeks. If after this time a patient requires further support for another 4 weeks,
you must place a new referral.
