    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    We all know volunteering is a good thing, and evidence and research tells us about the benefits of volunteering. However, how much do you know about the real tangible impact that volunteers make on NHS services every day? 

    Join Health Improvement Scotland for a special 'in conversation' webinar as they mark International Volunteer Day on 05 December 2023 to hear directly from the clinical staff who work alongside volunteers who will share their insights into the difference that volunteers make to them, their services, and the patients that they support. 

    Speakers include: 

    • Pamela Lawless, Patient Activity Co-ordinator, Gartnavel Royal Hospital, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde
    • Lynn Sutherland, Complementary Therapy Co-ordinator/Occupational Therapist, Macmillan Daycare Services, NHS Tayside
    • Monika Gazda, Recreational Nurse/Activity Co-ordinator, Intensive Psychiatric Care Unit, Royal Edinburgh Hospital, Volunteer
    • Vicky Richmond, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Surgical Frailty Team, Ninewells Hospital, NHS Tayside

    This webinar is open to all, and we encourage you to share the invitation across your networks - including your volunteers. Volunteer leaders, managers, and recruiters in all service areas will benefit from this session as knowing the benefits of volunteering is an important tool in volunteer recruitment and retention. 

    Book your place here.
