Volunteering at Lister Hospital

At our first meeting of the new year we had a very interesting talk by Jane Shaw on volunteering opportunities at The Lister, QEII and Hertford Hospitals. 

Volunteering at a hospital benefits the volunteer, the patients, the families and the hospital workers and the volunteer also benefits from meeting new people, learning new skills, gaining experience and improving self-worth.

Our local NHS Trust has over 300 volunteers who carry out tasks ranging from being a Ward Companion, making refreshments and chatting to patients to admin and greeting jobs.  If you are interested in volunteering and would like to join the East & North Herts NHS Trust please visit www.enherts-tr.nhs.uk or telephone the Voluntary Services on 01438 284760.
