Today is an Exciting day today for the Anne Robson Trust – training Butterfly Volunteers to support end of life patients and their loved ones at The Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow.
This team is drawn from the local community, NHS staff and volunteers, and includes the Chief Nurse of the trust (who is also one of our esteemed Patrons).
We had such an amazing group of people in the room. Such diverse skills and expertise.
We started with group discussions on how a Butterfly Volunteer can approach and leave a dying patient. This is some thought provoking stuff, and sometimes a difficult conversation.
Fantastic comments from our newly trained team of Butterfly Volunteers about why they wanted to join us. They’ll be supporting #eol patients & their loved ones @NHSHarlow starting next week! An exceptional team of people who will make a big difference to all they support!
Very excited about the team of fantastic Butterfly Volunteers @NHSHarlow starting to visit #eol patients on Monday morning! Another exciting announcement to come too! Watch this space! @PhilTowersey is a star!
Finally a huge thank you to The Park Inn by Radisson, Harlow for generously providing a room for us.
