About this role
The Give & Go service is a vital link for our patients and their loved ones whilst patients are unable to receive visitors. The volunteer run initiative is a busy service in which our volunteers take receipt of essential comfort items such as toiletries and clothes from relatives/carers, to be delivered up to the patients on the wards.
The volunteer team also collect laundry from our patients, to be delivered back to relatives for home laundering.
The role is a busy and very physical role which involves a lot of movement around the hospital site.
We currently have this opportunity available at:
Glasgow Royal Infirmary and Royal Alexandra Hospital
