About the opportunity
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) works with NHS Forth Valley to develop volunteering in local hospitals. We are looking for older volunteers to carry out support roles in Forth Valley Royal Hospital, with the aim of making a visit to the hospital a better experience for patients and visitors.
Volunteers provide support to patients and visitors in many different departments. Volunteers contribute to the well-being of patients and visitors by being a listening ear, a helpful and friendly face or even helping with a cup of tea. Our volunteers feel valued, make new friends and keep active in retirement.
