Work experience

Our student volunteer programme

Our student volunteer scheme starts in the autumn and runs for six months.

The student volunteer scheme enables young people age 16 and over who are considering a health related career to experience the hospital environment, work alongside the team and help patients. Students are placed on a ward and make a commitment to come in one evening a week for six months. The focus is around the patients evening meal and students have an opportunity to work in a ‘hands on way’ with patients.

For more information please contact Chrissie Beard, Voluntary Services Manager or Sarah Allen, Voluntary Services Co-ordinator on 01483 464847 for a discussion about what opportunities are currently available.
