Meet and Greet Volunteer

NHS Lothian is looking for volunteers to be the welcoming face at our sites across Edinburgh. We are looking for people who will welcome patients, visitors and staff into our hospitals. Meet and Greet volunteers have become an important factor in our continuing response to Covid-19, they help guide people around the sites and supply essential PPE and hand gel for those entering the hospitals.
