"But many of those shielding will need our support to do that, and by signing up to be an NHS Volunteer Responder, people who are well can do their bit too".

The NHS is "rallying the troops" for the war on coronavirus, with volunteers being called up to help vulnerable people stay safe and well at home. The patient transport volunteer will chauffeur medically fit and discharged patients back to their home, whereas the NHS transport volunteer will be transporting equipment, medication, and supplies between sites.

The Health Secretary praised the efforts of those on the front line and promised to keep them safe, to allow them to keep us safe.

"This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments where a single action from one person can be the difference between life and death for another, and simple acts of kindness are going to make all the difference in keeping some of the most vulnerable people well and out of hospital".

Over 170,000 people had signed up overnight, with the figure rising to 405,000 by the time Johnson took Wednesday afternoon's briefing.

GPs, doctors, pharmacists, nurses, midwives, NHS 111 advisers and social care staff will all be able to request help for at-risk patients through a call centre run by the Royal Voluntary Service, which will match people who need help with volunteers who live near them.

The Isle of Wight NHS Trust has thanked members of the public for the donations they have sent in to the teams at the hospital, including foods and flowers.
