Lister’s carers support team looking for volunteers

The Lister Hospital’s carers support team is looking for volunteers to take part in a new project that aims to provide extra support to those caring for family members. Volunteers will work in two-hour shifts, visiting wards and outpatient clinics, speaking to patients, and identifying those who are carers. The volunteers will be able to refer those who need extra support on to suitable organisations who can offer further advice and guidance.

Training will be provided for new starters.

Volunteers do so much important work in our local communities, and if there is anyone in North East Hertfordshire who would like to give their time to this good cause, I recommend that they call 01438 284760 or email volunteer.enh-tr@nhs.net for an application pack.
