The Dudley Group’s directors have rolled up their sleeves and gone ‘back to the floor’ with our volunteers to mark national Volunteers’ Week.
Chief Executive Paula Clark was joined by other members of the Board as they stepped into the shoes of volunteers making drinks for patients, taking the library trolley to wards and carrying out patient surveys.
Paula Clark, Chief Executive, said, “We want to say a huge thank you to the more than 300 volunteers who regularly lend a hand at Russells Hall Hospital and at our outpatient centres at Corbett and Guest.
“Our volunteers kindly give up their time for us and the work they do in every part of the Trust really is invaluable and very much appreciated.
“This is our opportunity to recognise the dedication of our volunteers and for the difference they make to patients.”
The Trust is currently recruiting volunteers to join our fantastic team. Anyone over the age of 16 who would like to make a difference in Dudley can apply to become a volunteer at the Trust
“Whether you can spare a few hours a week around your existing commitments or want to give your time more regularly, we’d love to hear from you” said Paula.
“There’s a variety of volunteering roles with vacancies at the moment, from mealtime assistants and department hosts, to patient friends and wayfinders.”
