Day 5 – Alex Styles, volunteer

What do you do for the Trust?

As a volunteer I give out Friends and Family Test cards in the outpatient waiting areas, and I also go on to the wards and do patient surveys. Whilst on the wards I talk to patients, help clean their tables and get them anything they might need, with the aim of raising their spirits.

What makes you proud of your work?

Speaking to patients and taking their mind off things for a short while makes me proud – giving a little bit of time goes a long way!

What was your highlight of 2018?

England reaching the World Cup semi-finals!

Top tip for a great Christmas?

Eat plenty of mince pies!
