Our volunteers support staff and patients and offer a helping hand or listening ear to make a patient’s hospital stay, or visit, as comfortable and as problem free as possible. We’re continuing to build our volunteer service and are looking for a team of people who are willing to give their time to help our dedicated workforce deliver the best possible quality care for our patients.
There are currently 150 volunteers - aged from 16 years to no upper age limit - helping out in the Trust.
We’d like people to offer their time to, meet and greet patients in the busy Outpatient Suites, sit and chat with patients, offer refreshments, give support to staff who deal with patients living with Dementia, to support our very busy help desk and patient escorts, help out with fundraising and much more. We’re speaking with all departments and areas of the hospital to find out what opportunities are available and what we might be able to offer anybody interested in getting involved. Perhaps you’ve been here for treatment and want to give something back, maybe you’ve always wanted to be involved with the hospital but not been sure how or perhaps you’ve got some time on your hands and want to do something worthwhile.
