Happy new year to all our readers, volunteers and patients.
It’s been a busy start to the year, with training being carried out and volunteers being placed on the wards in their new roles.
We have 5 mealtime volunteers, on ward 9 at North Tyneside General Hospital. Who have all settled into their roles brilliantly. We have received feedback from Tracy Young Modern Matron who said ” The volunteers are going really well, so thank you and please pass this onto them….we are very grateful to all those who gives their valuable time to us”
We have 2 Wellbeing volunteers placed on ward 3 at North Tyneside General Hospital and are hoping for more very soon. The feedback is fabulous and special mention to Joanne Mackintosh from the Patient Experience team for facilitating this.
