New volunteering website

To mark the start of National Volunteering Week NHS Tayside launched a new volunteering website on Monday which will make it easier for Taysiders to volunteer.

NHS Tayside has a long tradition of volunteering and currently has the highest levels of volunteers amongst Health Boards in Scotland, with almost 1000 citizens giving their time and energy freely to the NHS. In 2010 the organisation successfully achieved the Investing in Volunteers Award. Members of the public can visit the new webpage at under Getting Involved – Volunteer Services. It will support the ongoing recruitment of volunteers and provide information on local NHS volunteering opportunities for NHS staff and the public.
