How To Volunteer

If you live locally to your chosen hospital and are 16 years or over then you can apply to become a Volunteer.

All you need is:

  • The ability to be part of a team
  • The ability to communicate clearly with patients and visitors
  • The ability to adhere to confidentiality procedures
  • To be able to interact with patients, visitors and colleagues in a non-discriminatory manner
