Make a difference
BucksVision offer an information service at the eye clinics in Wycombe, Amersham, Stoke Mandeville and Milton Keynes Hospitals. Help provide reassurance and vital support to patients at these eye clinics.
Eye Clinic Patient Support
As a Eye Clinic volunteer you will provide a listening ear and signposting service to patients within the clinic setting, who may be worried or anxious about their eye condition. This is a vital service to people who may be learning of their sight loss for the first time. This role involves liaising with hospital staff, maintaining a daily logbook on clinic activity, recording the number of patients attending clinic, recording the number of registrations and referrals to BucksVision, and replenishing stocks of literature on display. Our volunteers carry out this service individually for a 2-3 hour period each week.
