Rotherham Hospital cheers its volunteers

09 Jun 2011 12:21:08

Volunteers and staff gathered in Rotherham Hospital’s Community Corner on Friday 3rd June to celebrate national Volunteers Week and the European year of the Volunteer. 

A dedicated force of more than 280 volunteers, provide support to patients and visitors in different areas of the hospital every day, so this event aimed to celebrate and raise awareness about the important role they play at the Trust. 

Voluntary Services Coordinator Joanne Farey says: “We have a great number of volunteers and they do a fantastic job. Services in the Trust are supported by volunteers aged 17 upwards, carrying out a variety of roles, including helping patients with their meals, delivering prescriptions and supporting people with communication difficulties due to a stroke. 

“Our volunteers make an important contribution to the experience of our patients and visitors, so we want them to know how much we appreciate what they do” 

For more information about volunteering at the Trust, please contact Jo on 01709 424329 or go to: www. rotherhamhospital.co.uk
