Volunteer partyVolunteers who give up their time to support the RD&E hospital were thanked for their valued contribution to patient experience at a special tea party today (6 June 2012).


The RD&E has over 400 volunteers who carry out a wide range of duties from running errands for patients, chaplaincy support, greeting visitors and giving directions and being a friendly face to talk to when waiting for clinic appointments. The hospital also works in partnership with voluntary charities and groups which support RD&E services and patient care including FORCE, WRVS, Hospital Radio, the League of Friends and The Comforts Fund.


Their hard work and commitment was recognised at the annual Volunteers’ Tea Party hosted in the main hospital restaurant. Trust Chairman Mr James Brent said: “Our volunteers generally like to give something back to the Royal Devon & Exeter with their time and goodwill. We know that their friendly professional support enhances the hospital experience of our patients and their families and we are very grateful to them all.”
