The Day Unit is currently open on Tuesdays and Thursdays but we are looking to expand our service and therefore require more team members to join us. Your availability does not need to be on a weekly basis as on occasion drivers may also be required to help visitors attend Roxburghe House, therefore if you would be interesting in registering on an ad hoc basis this would equally helpful.

We are looking for positive, enthusiastic and friendly people who will feel comfortable driving patients from their homes to Roxburghe House and home again.
