“Our Helpforce contact has been absolutely brilliant as a coach and critical friend along this journey. They have asked difficult questions and focused our thinking and have provided positive support and encouragement when things have been difficult. We are on the way to developing an excellent service which improves patients’ experience, supports staff and is rewarding to volunteers! Thanks."
