Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have temporarily stopped our normal process for recruiting volunteers across the Trust.
We are looking into how volunteers could help during the pandemic and will keep this page updated.
Please don't contact our Volunteer Service at this time.
Nationally, the NHS is recruiting for an NHS Volunteer Responders. Click here for information.
Volunteers are a valuable part of our team. Working as a volunteer can give you new skills, you can find out about health care, meet new people and contribute to the community.
We recruit volunteers to work in clinical and non-clinical areas, to support and enhance the experience of our patients and visitors. These include:
- Mealtimes on wards
- Library trolley service
- Outpatient clinics
- Main entrance welcomers
- Macmillan cancer and health information support
Our application process includes:
• Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) clearance
• Occupational Health clearance
• Two character references
• Attendance at a one day induction
Please contact the Voluntary Services Co-ordinator for more information: contact details can be found at the bottom of this page.
Our volunteers are placed in areas where they can make the most difference.
As Maternity patients generally have a low need for the support that volunteers are able to provide, roles are not available in this area.
Work Shadowing and Work Experience
Requests for work shadowing or work experience placements should be made directly to individual departments, as this is not part of the Volunteer Service.
Other local organisations may offer the opportunity to volunteer in a care setting:
