We know that this year's winter will be very different, with patients coming to hospitals not only for common respiratory illnesses, but perhaps with Covid as well. Therefore, now is the right time to start planning how volunteers can best help the NHS to cope with the challenges ahead.

In this recording, we asked senior leaders from the NHS and a healthcare partnership organisation to share with us their views on the challenges that the NHS is expected to face throughout the winter period. They also shared their strategic perspective on the priority areas that could benefit most from volunteer support.
