Volunteering at our hospitals

Volunteers make a huge contribution to all aspects of hospital life, from patient interaction and wellbeing, looking after our staff, running the hospitals' shops and radio stations, and fundraising for extra equipment.

It is not just our patients and staff who benefit. Volunteering is a rewarding experience that can transform your life by providing a new focus, new skills, new friends and the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping other people.

We have made some short-term changes to volunteering at our hospitals in light of the current situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and we are currently only recruiting into specific roles, these roles are for age 18+.

  • Responder Volunteers (shift pattern 4 hrs 8-12, 12-4)
