The Western Trust is looking for volunteers to help it deal with patients at the Altnagelvin emergency department.

Anne Love, Volunteer Manager for the Trust, said: “We already have a great team of volunteers who assist in a wide range of roles and we hope to attract more.

“We are looking for people aged over 18 years who are able to spare a few hours a week, are willing to help our patients and ideally have experience in engaging with the public. All volunteers will receive training and will be supported every step of the way”.

A new check-in system is being introduced in this area and volunteers will be a great asset in assisting patients and offering practical support to staff.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like more information about the project, please contact Anne Love or Wendy Doherty on Tel: (028) 71611155 or email: anne.love@westerntrust.hscni.net wendy.doherty@westerntrust.hscni.net
