Pick Up and Deliver is “incredibly helpful and necessary”

Jacqueline Howarth is the Operational Manager of RightCare Barnsley.

Jacqueline said: “The patients currently on our Virtual Wards are mostly older people and are frail, with respiratory conditions of varying severity. Virtual Ward is an alternative to hospital admission and a way to support earlier discharge.

Through Pick Up and Deliver, we can utilise the support of volunteers, who collect and deliver essential medication to our patients. The service has been a huge help.

If you want to help with Pick Up and Deliver tasks, you can do this by checking your activities. Volunteer responders are able to view which activities they are able to support by logging in to your GoodSAM account on the website. Then click on the 'Manage your current activities' tab.
