Volunteers sought for roles at new super hospital

3rd Aug 2023

Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust is appealing for people to join its volunteering team at its new super hospital being built in Smethwick.

The Midland Metropolitan University Hospital (MMUH) bosses are looking for 80 volunteers to take part in creative health and wellbeing workshops with patients, gardeners, catering assistant support, and more.

The Trust will open the hospital next year.

Patricia Hunt (pictured), MMUH Volunteer Recruiting Manager, said: “This is a great opportunity to volunteer in our amazing new hospital, which will boast ultra-modern facilities, a beautiful Winter Garden, ensuite inpatient rooms and the latest technology.

“We are looking for navigators to help people find their way around when they come to us either for care or as visitors. It’ll be an important supporting role as the nine-floor hospital opens next year.

“As well as navigators, we are recruiting into other roles which all have an equally as important part to play.

She added: “We are after caring and compassionate people who can commit to a minimum of three hours per week.”
