The volunteers will direct people to their destinations and will also help users of our services to access any information they may require when they first arrive.

Volunteer Manager, Bernie Mitchell said, “Coming into hospital as a patient or visitor can be quiet stressful if you’re not sure where to go. Our facilities are growing all the time, making it more difficult for certain people to find their way from one place to another. The meet & greet volunteers will assist people by guiding or even escorting them to where they need to be. They will also provide information such as handing out leaflets in relation to infection control and other issues.”
