Southmead Hospital welcomes the Duke of Gloucester to meet the Move Makers

North Bristol NHS Trust welcomed HRH the Duke of Gloucester to Southmead Hospital to meet the Move Makers who recently were given the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

The popular Move Maker volunteers were initially recruited for a month to help patients and visitors find their way around Southmead Hospital’s new Brunel building during the move into the new hospital in May 2014.

But the Move Makers, who were inspired by the Games Makers of the London 2012 Olympics, proved to be so popular with people coming into the new building it was decided to keep them on indefinitely.

During the visit the Duke of Gloucester was taken on a tour of the hospital, met a number of the Move Makers and was treated to a performance by the Move Makers Choir.
