Val Ewan

Voluntary Services Manager for Inpatient Acute, NHS Tayside

Val’s role involves recruiting and training new volunteers, as well as working with healthcare teams to develop new, safe and person centred volunteering roles. Volunteering in health care is hugely rewarding and working in that environment is extremely motivational. Val is humbled by people's willingness to gift their time to the NHS and finds it inspiring to hear how volunteering has changed people's lives. Volunteering has helped younger people to grow in confidence prior to going into further education, people have gained experience prior to pursuing careers in healthcare, others have made new friends or volunteered for their own wellbeing.
