NHS Volunteer Responders
Your NHS needs you! Join our team today.
NHS Volunteer Responders has been set up to support the NHS during the COVID-19 outbreak. To do this we need an 'army' of volunteers who can support the 1.5m people in England who are at most risk from the virus to stay well. Our doctors, nurses and other professionals will be able to refer people in to NHS Volunteer Responders and be confident that they have been matched with a reliable, named volunteer.

New App for smartphones
A Marlow resident has very kindly re-purposed an app for their business to help Marlow residents. This has purely been done as a community aid, not to self promote or make any money. It's free to use.
The app is a central hub for information about local restaurants, food producers and helpful NHS links to help residents easily locate things they need during this unprecedented time.
