It's National Volunteers Week- Meet Susan

It is National Volunteers Week

We wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to some of our wonderful volunteers who give up their time for Saint Catherine’s.

Meet Susan Stephenson

‘‘I've volunteered on the In-Patient Unit (IPU) for nearly three years now and I started because my dad was cared for at Saint Catherine's and I wanted to give something back. I don't know what I'd have done without them at that time.

During my IPU shifts I check the family rooms and restock them, I take out food for patients and clear away trays etc.

I also go round and take out teas and coffees after everyone has eaten.

My favourite part is talking to the patients and working with my fellow volunteer Nick and the nursing staff, who are all lovely and so helpful.

I would encourage anyone thinking about volunteering to just go for it.’’
