To enable our existing workforce of clinicians and support services to prioritise the treatment and care of patients affected by the global COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we warmly welcome applications from individuals aged 18 years and over to donate their spare time and energy to North Mid during this challenging time.

We currently have a range of temporary volunteer roles available across the hospital over the coming days and weeks. These include:

  • 'Meet and greet’ volunteers at entrances
  • Sanitisation volunteers to support increased cleaning of touchpoints, such as door handles
  • Volunteer porters to support patient flow
  • Volunteer hospital runners to help distribute equipment
  • Patient befrienders to help make refreshments for patients and facilitate contact with their relatives
  • Family liaison volunteers to support communication between relatives, patients and clinicians
