Volunteers wanted in P&K!

Perth & Kinross Health & Social Care Partnership is seeking volunteers to assist with patient transport and hearing aid support.

Volunteer drivers help transport patients to various appointments and services.  Drivers can volunteer from one to five days per week or simply on an on-call basis.  Help is most required from 9-10am and 3-4pm. Mileage rates are paid and you will receive appropriate training.

Blairgowrie Community Hospital is also appealing for volunteers for a new hearing aid support service. The service is looking for people who are friendly and understanding, patient and sensitive to the needs of others. Training will be provided.

Voluntary services manager Jane Laahs said, “Volunteering with your local health services offers a sense of purpose and is a chance to give something back. It is good for your own health and can provide new social contacts. We can all benefit if more people volunteer and get involved in their local community.”

If you have some spare time and you’re interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Jane Laahs on janelaahs@nhs.net or 01738 562323.
