We have many opportunities for you to volunteer. Our volunteers add something very special to the trust.

The work they do makes such a difference to staff, patients and visitors and we are very grateful for their efforts. We are lucky enough to have hundreds of volunteers, many who have supported the trust for many years.

Where can you volunteer?

Volunteers can give their time through many different areas in the hospital, including:

Internal opportunities

  • welcomers service
  • volunteer driver
  • voluntary patient helper
  • mealtime companion
  • enhanced care volunteer
  • fundraiser
  • chaplaincy

External opportunities

  • Royal Voluntary Service
  • League of Friends
  • Hospital radio

Volunteers play a valuable role across the hospital and can do from two hours a week to as many hours as they can spare. The hours and duties are adapted to fit in with the lives and the interests of the volunteer, with some working during the days and some in the evenings or weekends.

If you are considering volunteering, we ask that you make a commitment of six months. The application form below is only to apply to become a volunteer, unfortunately we cannot offer work experience placements.
