We are urgently appealing for local people to sign up as volunteer drivers to help us transport patients to and from our Day Therapy sessions in Heald Green or Little Hulton. Drivers are also needed to help transport patients to and from outpatient appointments at our Neil Cliffe Centre site in Wythenshawe Hospital.
Drivers would be required to use their own car, but expenses would be paid.
Some of our patients are unable to make their own way to and from our Day Therapy sessions each week or to their outpatient appointments, which is why we’re appealing for support from local people.
We’d be looking for people who would be happy to pick up patients so they can come to the hospice at 10am, then who could pick them up from St Ann’s and take them home again at 3pm. There also other times available for those willing to volunteer to bring patients to our Neil Cliffe Centre in Wythenshawe Hospital for appointments. We’d love to hear from you if you have a couple of hours to spare. Louise Fleming, Volunteer Manager
Our Day Therapy patients can access a range of services, including creative therapies, pain and symptom control, complementary therapies, counselling, relaxation and exercise.
Feedback from our patients is that the care they receive in our Day Therapy services makes a huge difference to their quality of life, whether that’s by helping them to control their pain or other symptoms, or by experiencing invaluable social interactions which make a real difference to their emotional wellbeing.
Our volunteer drivers help us fulfill this valuable service for our patients and help us to improve their wellbeing at a time they need it most. We’d be enormously grateful if local people could come forward and help. Louise Fleming, Volunteer Manager
