Appeal for Volunteers - Quaker Lane Surgery, Richmond

The Quaker Lane Surgery is appealing for 20-30 volunteers to help with a phone survey of vulnerable patients in the next two to three weeks.

The appeal has been sent to us by Richmond Town Councillor for the Richmond West Ward, Ian Woods.

Letters are to be sent out by the surgery to people in the "vulnerable" categories with regard to Covid-19 and volunteers are required to follow up the letters with a phone call to identify any support patients need.

Volunteers must be competent, have a good telephone manner, and have the ability to hold a telephone conversation with someone who may be anxious. Ideally, volunteers will have previous medical experience but this isn't essential.

Cllr Woods is looking to put a list together as early as tomorrow (23rd March).
