Volunteering at the Trust is enriching, rewarding and inspiring. Volunteers make a real difference to the experience of our patients and visitors by helping in some of the following ways:
- Supporting patients with practical tasks. This could be making mealtimes more sociable, helping patients to keep moving, listening to experiences, helping people to speak up or by providing social interaction.
- Helping visitors by providing a warm welcome, giving directions and assistance with finding their way around the hospital, and by providing or signposting to further information.
- Supporting our many charities who provide a broad range of services, support and entertainment. Our services include a shop, café, radio station and play services.
- Supporting our staff by helping with occasional administrative tasks, or making sure information for patients is readily available.
