Volunteers Needed For The Home From Hospital Scheme

The Home from Hospital Scheme aims to establish a network of volunteers who can support patients in the days immediently after they leave hospital to reduce the anxiety that a patient may feel during this time. Going home after a stay in hospital is often a difficult experience. It is even more so for people who do not have family or friends nearby or a network of support to keep them safe and well.

We are looking for people from all walks of life, ages and backgrounds to be volunteers and make this project a success. We'd very much like to hear from people who could give a few hours a week as volunteers for this worthwhile scheme which will make the world of difference to patients.

Come along to our coffee morning to find out more on Wednesday 13th July 10:30am-11:30am in the Day Room on Fenton Ward at The Cavendish Hospital, Manchester Road, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 6TE. Alternatively, contact Jo Blackburn Volunteer Programme Co-Ordinator on 0789 1302407 or 01773 525024, email: or joblackburn1@nhs.net or DCHST.Volunteers@nhs.net.
