Volunteering

A large team of volunteers supports the Royal Surrey helping in nearly forty areas within the hospital.  We are very proud of the diversity and scope of the service we offer and we are also very grateful to the loyalty of the 400 volunteers who make the service possible.

Our volunteers provide a very valuable service and we are always on the lookout for more volunteers to join our team.  Our volunteers augment the work carried out by professional staff and are all dedicated to creating a patient focused service.
