NHS Volunteer Qualified Complementary Therapists and Wellbeing Practitioners (Nov 2020)

As part of a new initiative at University College Hospital, London, they are looking for qualified complementary therapists and wellbeing practitioners who could volunteer their services for a new staff wellbeing project.  Many of the medical, nursing and other clinical staff are in need of some care as the last few months have left them exhausted and stressed.  This new service will hopefully help them through the next few months which are likely to be very challenging.  If you're interested in volunteering your services, please email Amanda Tata, Volunteer Services Staff Wellbeing Coordinator: amanda.tata@nhs.net
