Hospital Volunteer - Forth Valley Royal Hospital

  • VO86906


Description

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) works with NHS Forth Valley to develop volunteering in local hospitals. We are looking for volunteers to support staff in the Emergency department at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert. Volunteers provide a friendly face to reassure and offer support to patients and relatives. They provide snacks and refreshments to patients and carry out other tasks such as keeping chilled water jugs topped up. A blue IIR face mask must be worn and a Volunteer polo-shirt is provided.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our vision is of a society where everyone can participate in their local community through volunteering and social action.
