NHS Dumfries and Galloway is ready and waiting to recruit more volunteers to join a team of over 200 local people already providing a much valued and respected service at hospitals throughout the regio
Volunteer co-ordinator Margaret McGroggan said: “People take up the role of volunteer for a whole host of reasons, including gaining valuable experience, improving employability prospects, socialising/meeting new people, bringing structure to the week and being active. For some it’s a way building up or regaining confidence and for some it’s very simply about doing good for others.”
And Caroline Cooksey, workforce director, added: “Volunteers are greatly valued by our staff across the organisation for their commitment and dedication to making the experience for patients, relatives and carers in a healthcare setting the best it can be. In addition, they show care and concern for staff which often comes as a welcome surprise and is always greatly appreciated.”
