Hospitals and GP surgeries

What does it do?

Visits to hospital and the GP surgery can be stressful so the help and support of a Royal Voluntary Service volunteer often proves invaluable. Our volunteers accompany older people, arrange care for pets and are there in the first few weeks following a hospital visits. Royal Voluntary Service volunteers will also collect prescriptions and help cook meals.
