Horder Ward is on the 5th Floor of the hospital and volunteers working here help on the ward at lunchtimes and evenings and occasionally on Saturday lunchtimes.
They help the ward hostess with serving meals to patients while making sure that visitors know their way around.
There is a day room on the ward which the volunteers also keep tidy and in 2017 the Friends were able to create an area especially for children visiting friends and family.
Generally, we would expect Ward Assistants to have some general volunteering experience in other departments before taking on a role in Horder.
