Description

Providing a friendly and welcoming atmosphere to patients and visitors as they enter the hospital.

Signposting, and if necessary, guiding to relevant areas/departments within the hospital.

Supporting with the implementation of COVID safety measures (wearing of masks and use of hand gel).

Maintain stock of wheelchairs; replacing once someone has finished and cleaning for next use.

This can be a difficult time for patients and visitors so having that warm and helpful welcome can make all the difference.

"...I attended Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline. At the entrance door I was met with professionalism... The friendly meet and greeter at the door made me feel as though I was entering a top hotel."
