The Volunteer Services Team at Peterborough City Hospital are looking for Volunteers to join the team in a brand new role. The new Patient Experience Response Volunteers will be deployed across the hospital to help out where needed, assisting staff in giving patients both practical and emotional support. Duties will include spending time with patients to offer companionship, helping with refreshment rounds and generally signposting patients to services within the hospital.

Sarah Woodford, Response Volunteer Coordinator at North West Anglia Trust, which runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke & Stamford Hospitals said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone considering a career in the NHS or who has some spare time and would like to put that to good use. Volunteers at our Trust reflect our local communities, and range in age from 16– 94. They all share a passion for helping people. We currently have opportunities for those who want to make a real difference to the lives of our patients and give invaluable support to our staff."
