We welcome applications from people who can commit to working up to 4 hours per shift (dependent on the role) to provide an excellent service to our patients, visitors and staff. Our Volunteers operate on a roster system, thus you can choose to volunteer from one shift to however many you would like to contribute. Reliability is key to any of our volunteering posts, it lets our patients, visitors and staff down if we cannot provide our services efficiently. All volunteers are required to undergo a DBS check.
Our shop and café are located inside the hospital and we pride ourselves on the service they give. A friendly face, a chat with the lonely or worried, giving information about the hospital is all part of the job. As well as the important aspects of selling and cash handling.
Our ward trolley service take our shop to the patients. In the morning it’s the newspapers and in the afternoon a selection of goods from our shop. Many of our patients are elderly and some have no visitors. The trolley service gives so much more than just selling!
Our guides help people find their way to their appointments, giving assistance to use the computerized checking in system and showing the way to the different areas of the hospital.
We are also implementing befriending – our lovely volunteers give their time to go and chat to the patients. Bringing a cheery face and someone to talk to.
And if you prefer we need people with office and computer experience to support our League of Friends Office.
