What help is available in Sheffield for those who have to self-isolate?

Sheffield City Council are offering help with collecting shopping, medication and social contact:

You can register for this service via telephone (0114) 205 7120 or via their website.

 An additional council helpline for specific questions relating to coronovirus is available Monday to Friday 8.45am – 4.45pm on (0114) 273 4567. Operators will provide advice, signposting and referrals to help callers resolve whatever issues they are facing.

NHS Volunteers are offering the following:

  • Check in and Chat Support: Short-term telephone support to individuals at risk of loneliness
  • Community Support: Collection and delivery of shopping, medication or other essential supplies
  • Patient Transport Support: To take patients home who are medically fit for discharge.
  • NHS Transport Support: Transport for equipment, supplies and/or medication between NHS services and sites including assisting pharmacies with medication delivery.

Referral to this service is through your GP, doctor, pharmacist, nurse, midwife, NHS 111 advisers and social care staff.

Please note : These services are intended for those in our community who are at the highest risk of severe illness if they contract COVID-19 and therefore have been advised to isolate themselves.

You should only apply if you have no other support available, such as friends, family or other people who can help. You will still need to pay for your shopping and any prescriptions fees.

Monitor and follow the health guidelines
