    I have type 2. Am considering volunteering for the NHS: delivering food etc to those how are self isolating. Have looked at the online volunteer form, Good Sam, no way to enter any health condition details. I don't want to waste the Good Sam peoples time, does anyone know of any way of contacting them to explain the situation?

    Thank you

    https://www.goodsamapp.org/NHS Info from this page:-

    "Volunteers must be 18 or over, and fit and well with no symptoms. Those in higher-risk groups (including those over 70, those who are pregnant or with underlying medical conditions) will be able to offer support by telephone."
