Patient support

Patient support is about looking after a patient as a whole and not just treating their illness. Whether it is through the traditional patient support group or by providing complementary therapy massage to help with coping with a condition, we are here to help. We want all patients to feel that they have a ‘friend’ with them when they come to one of our hospitals. Our purple topped Volunteers will greet you with a smile, help you find your way and visit you on the ward if you are admitted and alone and would like some company.

Complementary Therapy Massage
