SWBH volunteer

An Activity Support and Mobility Volunteer service focused on reducing patient deconditioning in acute medical and community wards.

This guide uses learning from the activity support & mobility service being delivered in Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust (SWBH). The purpose of the guide is to provide a potential service adopter with the information needed to be able to:

a) Decide if the service would be of benefit to their organisation

b) Understand what considerations are needed to adapt the service to their environment
