As one of the governors at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, I read your blog with pride. I was myself a volunteer at the London Lighthouse in the 1990s and then at the Kobler Clinic, so I realise the great importance of volunteers. We are extremely lucky to have Maddy and her team at Chelsea and Westminster.
We are indeed very fortunate to have Maddy and her team. I witness on a daily basis how they contribute to both patient and staff experience. They exemplify the values of the Trust.
The role of the volunteer is understimated and I am fortunate to work with such wonderful volunteers across Kent. Without all volunteers time, committment and patience, our patients' experience would be less pleasurable.
