The Trust is not currently recruiting volunteers until further notice. Please come back to this page in future to view any future volunteering opportunities.
However, the Friends of Royal Brompton charity and the rb&hArts programme are both recruiting volunteers.
Volunteers provide a vital role in the working of our Trust – helping our staff with tasks, supporting patients and bringing a spirit of goodwill and enthusiasm to our hospitals. Volunteers help our patients and help staff do their jobs better.
We offer a variety of roles and will help find or make a role that is suited to your experience, skills and wishes. Our full-time voluntary service manager will help guide and support you through your volunteering.
Volunteering should work for you as well as us, which is why we value volunteers, offering them support and training, and why we insist on a culture of high standards.
We ask that volunteers are able to commit to a minimum of four hours per week for six months. This helps us to ensure that your experience is valuable and rewarding to you as well as our patients and staff.
The minimum age we can accept as a volunteer is 18 years old.
Currently, volunteers are involved in numerous tasks throughout many areas of the Trust. Their work involves administration, fundraising, acting as patient guides to the various wards and departments, talking to patients as well as providing company for relatives while their loved ones have surgery.
There are also volunteering opportunities with:
- Friends of Royal Brompton Hospital, a registered charity that supports the hospital's work through independent fundraising and activities
- rb&hArts programme, a charitably funded programme designed to bring the benefits of the arts to support patients (currently accepting applications until 28 February 2018).
