Anyone aged over 16 who is in good health and has time to spare can volunteer at our hospitals.
Many people choose to volunteer once they have retired, but it is also a great way for students and young people to gain invaluable work experience.
As a volunteer within our hospitals, you could get involved in a number of activities, including:
When a patient leaves hospital it can be hard to transition back into being at home. Volunteers play a big part in helping patients settle back into everyday life by going into their homes.

Training and support will be provided.
