Our Volunteers are fantastic! Each one is invaluable and irreplaceable to us, giving their time ‘freely’ through the support they give to our hospital and community teams.
We are indebted to our Volunteers for the amazing contribution they make each and every day of the hospital’s life. As such, we are fully committed to enabling, supporting and celebrating volunteering in all its diversity at all times.
As one of our Volunteers you will contribute that little extra that can make all the difference to patients’ comfort while in hospital. There are a variety of activities and opportunities to support and benefit patients, our staff and the communities we care for. We have support and resources for all aspects of volunteering.
Our Volunteers help with activities like:
All of our volunteers are entitled to a free onsite car parking space.
Volunteers will also be given a Volunteer Team polo shirt to wear so that they are instantly recognisable as part of the wider hospital support team.
The Trust currently has over 300 volunteers working as part of the Trust’s official volunteer programme or as part of support groups such as Anker Radio, the Chaplaincy, the League of Friends, the Members’ Advocacy Panel (MAP) and the Patient Advocacy Forum (PAF).
Volunteers perform an invaluable service, helping to complement the care offered by our staff.
