Volunteering at your local hospital

Our volunteers provide additional support to our patients, their carers and our staff with the aim of improving the hospital experience for all.

Whether they are registered with us as an individual or as a member of an affiliated voluntary organisation, volunteers at our hospitals play an integral part in the patient’s experience.

We currently have more than 700 fantastic volunteers donating their time and energy to the wards and departments across our sites. Our volunteers hail from all walks of life and backgrounds.  They support our hardworking staff and make a genuine, lasting difference to the lives of people receiving a service from our hospitals.
