As no-one is currently allowed to visit patients in hospital, a ‘Give and Go’ service makes it possible for friends and relatives to drop off things like magazines, clothes, phones/chargers, snacks and drinks or collect laundry. Andrew spent an enjoyable and rewarding day helping carry out this service in a socially distanced way with the team.
This is a vital service that lets patients know they are cared about even if visiting in person isn’t possible.
Andrew hopes to do some more voluntary work at Gartnavel in the coming weeks.
Thanks to Andrew and all of the NHS volunteers out there. Your care is much appreciated.
