Linda volunteers in the physiotherapy ward / post stroke ward in administration and in the volunteering office for three to four hours a day.
“My passion is the administration side of volunteering” says Linda. “On the ward I am responsible for different things each day, from printing and distributing menus to patients to collecting patient stories. In the volunteering office I help with general enquiries, phone calls and any admin tasks that need doing.
“The most rewarding part of volunteering is the people that I get to meet. It is a wonderful way of making new friends. No two days are the same which makes it challenging but has also given me an opportunity to learn lots of new things which have been a huge boost to my confidence.
“The volunteering team at Edgware Community Hospital are very welcoming and I love being part of a team again. Volunteering is a great way to get back into work and volunteering in healthcare can be very emotionally rewarding too.”
