We will provide additional support, mentoring and continued professional development. We ask all Complementary Therapy volunteers to provide a commitment of 3½ hours morning, afternoon or evening at least once a fortnight.
Good communication skills and the ability to be sensitive to the needs of others are essential for this role.

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
