Volunteering in hospitals
Royal Voluntary Service has been there for the NHS since the beginning - and we’re looking for determined people to keep this legacy going.
When you offer your compassion, commitment and skills as a hospital volunteer, you’re helping to improve a patient’s experience, support their recovery and ensure that they can return home safely, ultimately reducing the chance of them being readmitted.
You can also offer help to staff and visitors by volunteering in one of our Royal Voluntary Service Hospital Shops or Cafés.
What’s more, we have a wide range of hospital volunteer opportunities to match your talents.
If you haven't tackled anything quite like this before, don't worry. We have an experienced team of people who specialise in voluntary work in hospitals and can help you make the most of your time with us. They’ll be ready to guide you through the whole process with plenty of support, showing you how to volunteer at a hospital and answering all of your questions, such as - what do volunteers do in hospitals?
