If you require help with transport
The government has set up the Good Sam scheme offering patient transport. Please contact your GP or the department at the hospital and asked to be referred to the scheme or to use the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Patient Transport.
Please remember to follow government guidance about good hygiene and social distancing. Please do call on us if you are older and/or living without a support network and we will do our very best to help.
Harrogate Round Table has worked with Harrogate Borough Council, North Yorkshire County Council, HADCA and trusted local charities to provide a helpful guide to local support in and around Harrogate to assist those people who are self isolating at home.
Sign up as a Here to HELP volunteer
As Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads across the UK, it will be hard for people to maintain their social connections. Looking out for our neighbours has never been more important, and we can all do our bit to ensure that people who need a little extra help are not forgotten at this time – be they family, friends or neighbours.
If you’re over 18 years of age, healthy and at low-risk (see NHS guidelines ) you can now sign up to become a Here To Help Volunteer and help others in Harrogate or Ripon, with tasks such as urgent food shopping for the most vulnerable and providing back-up to local charities delivering vital services, as necessary.
Read more about how you can play your part and find out where to turn for safe and trusted support on the HADCA website.
Take care and stay safe. Remember, we’re Here to HELP!"
