Andron FM staff, in partnership with ECG and SecuriGroup, recently supported a volunteer sign-up event located at NHS Lothian Headquarters in Waverley Gate, a property managed by our client CBRE. NHS Lothian is the second largest Health Authority in the UK, covering 21 hospitals, and like many healthcare providers have called upon members of the public to assist them in the fight against COVID-19.
Billy, Robert and James were on hand to ensure the health and safety of staff and volunteers alike by sanitising seats and workstations between each use, directing volunteers to the correct locations upon arrival and distributing t-shirts to those present. Together with NHS staff and other Waverley Gate service partners, they assisted with the registration of over 340 individuals who began volunteering as of 13th April. Our team worked non-stop to help the sessions run smoothly and their efforts received incredible feedback from Jane Greenacre, Head of Volunteering with NHS Lothian:
‘Thank you to you and your team for all your support… It really was invaluable. Your ability to think on your feet and adjust to the situation as it unfolded… ensured that everyone had a safe and positive experience. We could have not processed such high numbers in such a short time frame without your help… you have helped us get volunteers into hospitals and supporting patients and staff more quickly.’
She also commended our team for their ‘good humour and smiles’, saying that their positive attitudes ‘added to the atmosphere and helped volunteers go away with a sense they are valued’.
Well done and thank you to everyone involved!
