Volunteering opportunities

People who volunteer at our hospitals are a vital part of our team.

Currently around 700 people donate their time to support our staff to deliver the very highest standards of care with compassion.  Volunteers are often the first people patients and visitors see when they come to hospital, providing a warm welcome and offering practical support, information, and helping to allay any anxieties.

Volunteers undertake a wide variety of roles, from running our coffee shops to helping patients and visitors find their way around. Volunteering is also a fantastic way for young people to gain invaluable experience, and is very popular with retirees as a means of keeping busy, sociable and active.

For more information about the volunteers service, contact Sylvia Turner on 01257 247536 or email sylvia.turner@lthtr.nhs.uk. You can also view our current volunteering vacancies on our jobs website here.
