The Western Trust is seeking to recruit volunteers to assist at Altnagelvin Hospital’s Emergency Department. The Trust have said that they are seeking more people to work in a voluntary capacity due to a new check-in system being introduced at the Derry hospital’s A&E.

The Trust said that volunteers will be “a great asset in assisting patients and to offer practical support to staff”.

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”.

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