The Royal Voluntary Service is calling on local residents to volunteer for an on-ward befriending service at Macclesfield Hospital.

The RVS (formerly known as WRVS), will be working with NHS Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group to launch the service during October.

The new service will be part of the dedicated dementia friendly ward at the hospital and provide practical and social support to older people.

Volunteers are needed to make the service a success as they help provide companionship and reassurance, relieve boredom, and at meal times encourage patients to eat.

To find out more contact Jo on 07582 469205.
