People who are looking to support the Covid-19 vaccination programme by taking up a volunteer steward/marshal role are being asked to contact Derbyshire Community Health Services (DCHS).

As DCHS state: “We have worked to make this as easy as possible. Please know that your information is managed with the utmost care, please complete the spreadsheet and send it back to us as soon as possible. 

“The volunteer work may involve periods standing outside to marshal car parks, supporting the flow-through of appointments and supporting people with needs such as returning to their transport or pushing wheelchairs. 

“Please do let us know if you have any health concerns or worries that are impacted by these described duties, the wellbeing of all who support us in Derbyshire Community Health Services is our top priority.”

News update: February 2020 - since publication of this article, the volunteer programme has now been paused. We would like to thank everyone who has got in touch to offer their support.
