Congratulations to Laura Greene, Head of Volunteering and Community Partnerships at HRCH and Kingston Hospital, who was awarded the ‘Above and Beyond’ award for her outstanding contribution to excellence in volunteering at the inaugural Helpforce Awards last Friday.
Helpforce works with health and care organisations to increase volunteering opportunities and accelerate their impact.
Laura said: “It is easy to be passionate about a job where I can infuse NHS systems with incredible people volunteering to deliver second-to-none patient experience, patient safety and better health. With Helpforce, I have found a tribe of volunteering professionals and I feel hugely proud to have been a critical friend in their success and impact to date.
"I would like to thank the Kingston Hospital and HRCH community for their support for innovation in volunteering, their compassion which drives outstanding patient care, and their belief in the art of the possible.”
